Art has been part of my life since childhood, but I seriously pursued it professionally as an adult studying with an array of accomplished artists. Some of the artists I have studied with include  Matt Smith, Don Demers, Nancy Franke,  and Michael J. Lynch.  I have studied most extensively with Bill Davidson including workshops in France, Italy, Wyoming, California and Georgia.
Painting primarily landscapes, I strive to capture the feel, or essence, of the scene.  Reference material comes from local sites and those from travels to the Georgia coast and North Carolina mountains, western U.S., Canada, Italy and France.  I get enjoyment from looking at God’s beautiful world and I strive to make each painting be a “window” for the viewer by capturing the patterns of light and shadow and using soft and hard edges to direct the viewer's eye throughout the painting.
Being outdoors, or en plein air, has become my favorite, and most challenging, way of painting and I have found that this helps me see the subtle colors in the landscape--the colors that a camera misses or distorts.  From these studies, larger works can be completed in the studio.  
Painting has become a passion for me and I find that the more I learn, the more I want to learn because as an artist I feel I must always study and challenge myself to continue to improve.  This keeps my art exciting with a fresh appeal.
