Biography


Often called minimalist, my painting style continues to evolve in different directions. In my still life paintings, I strive for high realism and simplicity, exploring the beauty of simple objects and making them look so real you want to reach out and touch them. Through my skyscapes and waterscapes, I try to create a quieter, more dreamlike feeling, hoping to transport the viewer to a place of beauty, mystery and peace.
 
I began my lifelong study of art at the University of Maryland, graduating with a degree in art education. After teaching art for several years in the public school system, I moved to California and began a career creating and producing hospital training programs. Now residing in Charlotte NC, I am able to devote myself once again to painting full-time.
 
I hope you enjoy my work!
