BiographyMy passion to paint began at the early age of 5.  Brushes, canvas, and paint given to me by my late grandmother and Bob Ross’s humorous and joyful instruction through the rabbit ear television.  Creativity flourished as I encountered a rare bone disease in my leg that kept me from school and activities during my childhood, yet provided the quiet solstice and focus to feed my artistic mind.  Age 9 I had my first solo exhibit at a local library. After numerous brakes, surgeries, stitches, I was mended up, healed, and hit the ground running. Now I hike up mountains, kayak to islands, and drive in my convertible to painting destinations to capture the beauty of this world that never ceases to take my breath away.How blessed I have been to experience a life on the coast of Florida, the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  Painting excursions to the Hudson River, at Frederic Church’s Olana Estate, rolling hills of Vermont, coastline of Maine and Cape Cod, down South to the Appalachian Trail, Emerald Coast of Florida all the way to the beaches of Aruba.I am a 4th generation Frank Vincent DuMond student thanks to a group of 3rd generation painters that took me under their wing in New Hampshire. Utilizing that palette and some of my personal “tweaks” to create depth, distant landscapes and a subtle yet defining light effect are my strong points and passion. Now back in North Carolina, I am exercising my experience and eye en plein air  and in the studio to capture the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
