"Catylea Orchid" watercolor

Women Artists of Kauai is pleased to welcome our newest member, Ibbie White. She currently works in watercolors, acrylics, fabric design and assemblage.

"Painting enables me to share my delight in the natural world with others - to express vividly what I see and feel about plants and other living creatures.

Watercolor, especially combined with ink, feels as if it is a natural medium for me. Demanding attentiveness and delicacy, it holds the promise of unexpected beauty from the interaction of color and surface. Watercolor is low toxicity, portable, and low maintenance."
