Imagine It In Watercolors Original Watercolor Paintings, Prints, and Sketch Workshops
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website. I am a self-taught watercolor and digital artist working in Chicago’s historic West Loop. Watercolor is my favorite medium to work with because of its versatility. I’m inspired by daily life, nostalgia, and imagination to create transportive artworks. I also paint and exhibit with the Plein Air painters of Chicago Spring through Fall.
Featured Recommended Book
The weather is perfect for urban sketching. There are lots of books on the subject and this one is a favorite.
Like me, the book focuses on minimal supplies and creative expressions. I highly recommend this book for those starting out sketching on location as well as seasoned artists who are looking for a way to let loose and break the pattern of seeking perfection.
Latest from my blog
Spring is here and yesterday I went out for my first paint out with the Plein Air Painters Chicago. I took my Plein Air kit and DIY easel out and I wanted to share with you how I put it together. While looking for a solution, I came across Joe Cartwright’s website where he shared his own DIY watercolor easel. Joe Cartwright is an Australian watercolor artist, teacher, and author. I love his work and thought it a good idea to take his advice.
