I’m a watercolor artist from Southern California, living in South Pasadena. After getting my BA from the Art Center College of Design, I did freelance watercolor illustration and calligraphy for two greeting card companies, among other freelance projects. I’ve designed hundreds of greeting cards and won two prestigious LOUIE Awards for Outstanding Greeting Card Design. I recently found a few local painting groups and enjoyed painting more than ever, developing my personal impressionist watercolors and gouaches outdoors. I also started a blog a year ago and enjoy posting my watercolors and writing about where to paint.
