Art has always been my passion. After graduation from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree I enjoyed a long career as a graphic designer. My clients included Andy Griffith, Aaron Neville and CeCe Winans to name a few. Then by chance a client asked me to create a series of paintings…that one project re-ignited my original love of painting. I retired from computers and client meetings to pasture’s and tubes of oil paint!  I paint every chance I get... wether the beautiful Tennessee landscape just outside my door, wild flowers along a path or antique vases filled with zinnias. For me inspiration comes from the Master Creator and the beautiful world He has given us.   Currently I am an artist in residence at OnTrack Studios in beautiful, historic Franklin TN.  
I am truly privileged to have continued my painters education with several nationally recognized landscape artists: Roger Dale Brown, OPAM, AISM, PAPA, ASMA, PASE, Howard Friedland, OPAM, and Scott Christensen OPAM.
