 ARTIST STATEMENT:

I love the qualities of watercolor – its fluid nature.  To me, the interaction of artist with the medium is like a dance – full of motion, feeling and expression.  I love to watch the painting develop and to discover new color and composition.

As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in new and expressive ways.     Janet Rogers, AWS
