Hi, I hope that you will wander about my site, enjoy my paintings and learn a bit about me and what drives me to create and paint the landscape. I will offer completed paintings to view and some techniques and things that I have attempted to do, some successful and some not,all our efforts are not always winners, but something is always learned along the way.
I have an affinity for nature from the deep woods, farm vistas, to rivers and streams and the coastal marshes. It is the tranquility of that environment which I would like to capture in my paintings and convey to the viewer. I paint on location as well in the studio. Painting on location is a challenge and a joy,but always a learning experience
My philosophy is, create with abandonment, always be open to what you may
think is the impossible and revel in what is learned.
Bio:I moved to Georgia in the 80's seeking the warmer climate then of the northeast. After settling into my new home I attended Kennesaw State University and received a BA in studio art.After the closing of a family business, I was then able to pursue my creative goal of painting the Georgia landscape, honing my skills through Plein Air painting and finding a way to market my work.
