San Anselmo, CA
At the moment I am painting a series on reflections and the movement of water and watercolor is an ideal medium for this with its natural fluidity and luminosity. I have also been teaching a series of watercolor classes online which I really enjoy as it allows me to connect with students in many different parts of America.
I grew up just outside Glasgow in Scotland. My grandmother loved to draw and paint in watercolor, and from the earliest age I have been fascinated by painting in watercolor with its brillant colors, luminosity and sparkle. I came to San Francisco in my early twenties and have lived in the same house in Sleepy Hollow, San Anselmo for over forty years. Painting flowers in my garden, still life and the beautiful scenery of Marin County are a constant source of interest to me. One of my watercolors, "Mt. Tamalpais" was selected as a finalist for the "Get Covered" competition and article about artists in the May issue of Marin Magazine. One of my paintings was juried into the 2017 edition of the American Art Collector produced by Alcove Books in Berkeley, California.
