I am mostly inspired by the beauty of the wildlife and landscapes of the southeast. I hope to create work that feels original and versatile. My aim is to produce paintings with a quiet, tranquil atmosphere using gentle light. Paintings of birds and other animals we are familiar with are given a more contemporary feel by placing them in a portrait like setting.
After my formal art education, I eventually had a successful career as a decorative artist for many years in Atlanta. My focus is now fine art, working mainly in acrylic on canvas. I consider myself fortunate that the challenges of working and developing as an artist continue to give me enormous satisfaction.
