Born and raised in Georgia I have held an admiration for art as long as I can remember.  After graduating from The University of Georgia Atlanta became home base.  I was honored to work for interior design greats Dan Carithers and Dotty Travis.  My style and design aesthetics were honed by their detailed knowledge of design, architecture and art combined with my experience through travels to New York, London, Paris, Prague, Beijing and a summer living Italy.  My initial training as an artist began with studio classes at Georgia however I continue to experiment with new techniques, mediums, subjects.  I have always been in awe of nature and this incredibly inspiring landscape we are blessed to call home.  Using lights and darks, texture and most often subtle color combinations my artwork is about expressing appreciation for our lives and the beautiful creatures who surround and help sustain us.
