For most of my life, I considered myself a writer, then a teacher of writing. As a child, I’d wished I could draw, but I knew I could write…so I wrote. Still, a sixth-grade teacher stayed after school to help some of us learn to draw horses; the junior high school Creative Writing Club asked me to do the illustrations for our anthology. Later, a visit by a hurricane, that kept me ensconced in my townhouse working through the exercises of a book entitled Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, started the wheels really turning.

Watercolour is probably the most satisfying of all mediums. Although difficult in the beginning,

after practice its mysteries will unfold, providing the utmost pleasure for the dedicated. (Robert Lovett)
