Ambassador of the Week: Karen Sioson

Meet Karen Siosonthis week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!

“White Bougainvillea” (watercolor on paper, 19 11/16 x 13 25/32 in.)
Bougainvilleas are a favorite subject. The reference for this one is from our garden.

“I developed an interest in watercolor back in the 1990s while studying Interior Design. We were introduced to various rendering mediums but what caught my fascination was watercolor. It captures the beauty of light and color so well.”

“Bayawak” (Monitor Lizard, Philippines) (watercolor on paper, 17 x 28 47/64 in.)
There are several kinds of monitor lizard in the Philippines. This beauty can be found in our province, Bataan.
“Here Comes the Sun” (watercolor on paper, 20 1/4 x 22 3/4 in.)
Another bloom from our garden and a favorite flower for me to paint. Hibiscuses come in a variety of colors. The yellow ones seem to glow.

Become an American Watercolor Ambassador for a chance to be featured in an upcoming issue of American Watercolor Weekly newsletter.
