Welcome to HMK Watercolors!
I have always expressed myself creatively, but did not become an artist until after I suffered a severe ischemic stroke in 2011. I lost use of my dominant right hand, so I learned to paint left-handed. Painting with watercolors is not only a passion now, but an outlet to express myself since I no longer can verbally or through writing. My creativity is fueled by my love of photography and art. A watercolor subject may come from a photograph I’ve taken after being inspired by composition, lighting or shadow. Or it may evolve from a sketch based on a memory etched in my mind. Though my passions are landscapes and urbanscapes, I also enjoy painting animals, people and landmarks. I am inspired by beautiful scenery, my travels, the areas in which I live, and my favorite sports and teams. I hope you enjoy browsing my one of a kind paintings, limited edition prints and greeting cards. You may order prints and greeting cards directly through this site, or feel free to contact me if you are interested in purchasing an original HMK Watercolor painting. My prints and greeting cards are also available at these locations.
