Artist Statement: I have been teaching watercolor for almost 20 years and my title to my students is mohen (mother hen). I would be hard pressed to say which is more exciting; creating or lighting fires under others. My first ribbon was awarded in 1993 and I realized I needed to step away from realism and take a walk on the wild side. I never looked back. Nancy Stewart Matin, Signature Member, OWS
