“For me, watercolor painting is like skating on ice. It is risky, challenging, exhilarating and very gratifying. I paint with spontaneity to capture these emotions while at the same time preserving the nuances of the medium. Subject matter is necessary for inspiration, but through interpretation, I paint what I feel as much as what I see.”
