• I use Arches 100% cotton, 140 lb (300gsm) -300 lb (640 gsm) watercolor paper for each of my paintings

  • Daniel Smith is my favorite source, but I have been known to pick another source when a particular shade speaks to me

  • All paintings are stretched and blocked fully before I begin painting, to minimize ripling

  • Inspiration comes from many sources, sometimes nature, sometimes a photograph that speaks to me, sometimes a combination of many sources
