Finding beauty in the everyday scenery of life.  That is what inspires my painting.  Sometimes painting outside in the first light of the morning or the light on an object that strikes me. The art in the beauty of our world around us is what drives me to paint.
Plein air painting is what I love the most but time and weather also force me to work in the studio.  I have a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia and worked as a Landscape Architect for 20 years.   Every year I travel from Florida to Montana and paint scenes from both places.  I enjoy teaching oil painting and have taught oil painting for seven years.
