My love of drawing began when I could hold a crayon. A yellow-green one I remember distinctly. Not only did it have a pleasing color, it tasted pretty good too. Even as a child, my enjoyment of nature’s beauty was neverending. The intricacy and playfulness of colors, patterns, light and shadows has always fascinated me.
I like to believe that when my brush dances between imagination and reality, something magical can happen. When it does, the emotional connection between me and my subject says it all. Design, values and color are the means to express a moment in time, captured in dramatic watercolor or oils. I’ve been honored to have received over 70 awards over the years, and have been published in American Artist, The Best of Watercolor SPLASH 11 and SPLASH 16. I've also enjoyed teaching many wonderful students in workshops throughout the Southeast.
I’m blessed beyond measure to be an artist, and treasure every step in this journey.
