Her dynamic brushwork and expressive use of color combines in a unique way giving her paintings a fresh, welcoming look that is easily recognizable. She paints with a powerful signature style that invites viewers into her scenes for a glimpse of a simpler way of life.
I really enjoyed the DVD I purchased from you. I love the freshness and light of your art. As a newby watercolorist, I hope to include your generous and extremely helpful instruction into my art. With just a little practice, I've already seen an improvement in my watercolor art. I'm using a lighter touch, remembering to use interesting and various shapes, and mostly, simplifying.
Again, thanks for a great DVD. I hope you produce more!
The technical aspects of the DVD are very good. Your demeanor, the audio clarity, and the camera work that gave me a clear close-up view of the palette work, the application of paint to large shapes, and the detailed brushwork. Oh how I wish I'd seen this when I first started with watercolor years ago. I'd never seen ANYONE actually DOING a watercolor, much less someone as skilled as you.
