Welcome to my website. It is a virtual journey into art where beauty sometimes is found in unexpected places and in the secret nooks that only the heart can search.
I call the site The World Wide Watercolorist because of the global nature of many of my painted subjects. My two passions…volunteer, humanitarian service and painting…have made all this possible. I have learned first hand that art can open frontiers of the mind and build friendship and understanding between diverse cultures. So many people have helped me on my journey. I am indebted to more people than I can mention here. However, I think that John Bartlett has expressed it best:
I have gathered a posie of other men's flowers, and nothing but
The thread that binds them is mine own.
