Whether using notes of translucent tissue, or pen and watercolor… She wisely achieves a sense of rhythm and structure through arrangements of free hand blocks and rectangles. She wisely leaves something to the viewer’s imagination, sometimes silhouetting the trees in white for a stenciled effect.
That Davis-Ganek has won many Best-In-Shows, Purchase Awards and, most recently, the prestigious New Jersey Watercolor Society Colorist Company Award, is not difficult to understand. She is unafraid of color, yet uses it to temper the dramatic with a pantheistic impression that subsides in delicacy at the outer edges. Her vision is bold but feminine, and she creates harmony with nature within a single frame, from moist soil upward to shimmering sky.
