The Artist Says:


 
I feel a connection with nature and how it touches my soul.I especially love watching light caress an object and then capturing it with paint. It is knowing I can successfully translate this feeling and emotion that inspires me to paint.
 
As an intuitive painter I love it when something in nature catches my eye.  It stirs something inside me which starts the process of asking “why” am I so intrigued with this scene.  It is because of this simple question I start my painting process.  Painting plein air is where I feel I can gather the magic and emotion of the scene.  Sometimes it isn’t possible to finish a painting while in nature, so with the aid of reference photos and carefully written notes I am able to keep that feeling I want the painting to portray.
 
My paintings bring joy as well as a sense of peace to me. They hopefully invoke those same feelings to the viewer. They are windows opening back to a fleeting moment. They are a visual record of that place in time.

I took some lessons from you at your beautiful mountain home in October 2014, learned so much from you in such a short time.

 I have always loved to create. I was fortunate to have some grade school teachers who recognized my early love of drawing and painting and encouraged my parents to help nurture my passion. One of my fondest memories is taking lessons from a local professional artist in her huge studio over old cotton warehouses where I lived in Shreveport, LA. 
I continued my art lessons through high school and was often recruited to illustrate school and church projects. 
I was hesitant to major in Art in college since I had not studied art formally in school. I felt I didn't have the background. My first art professor changed my thoughts when she told me that hard work was the key to being a successful artist and that you could begin at any time.
I ended up graduating from Rhodes College with my degree in Art with Distinction. My main interest was [...]
