About the Artist
Early exposure to the art world came through my mother, Faith Fritz, an international watercolorist. Some of my fondest memories include sunny days with her at the Toronto Art Exhibition, large crowds at Buffalo’s famous Allentown Art Show and long afternoons watching her paint.
Although I have worked many years in the graphic arts field, written craft articles, published zines and worked with various media, watercolor remains my main commitment and my joy.
Ed Whitney stated, “Substances obeying their own laws do beautiful things.” Using watercolor on slick surfaces, such as Yupo paper or TerraSkin paper is a way I have found that allows mixing of colors, making unique shapes and gradations. My new series makes use of these natural processes.
I currently reside in Syracuse with my husband and daughters. I am a signature member of the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society and the Central New York Watercolor Society. I also belong to the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA), National League of American Penwomen (NLAPW) as well as several small local art guilds.
