From a young age I have been drawn to creative pursuits, especially the visual arts. Fortunately I’ve had the opportunity to develop my artistic ability through private instruction and self-exploration. Recently I’ve had the chance to return to my love of painting and enjoy both impressionist and abstract styles in a variety of media. 

My newest passion has been working with oil paint and cold wax. It’s very satisfying to work with and I’ve enjoyed the use of palette knives and other tools as opposed to brushes for a change. The possibilities are endless with all of the products and mediums now available to artists!

I find inspiration from flora and fauna, landscapes, food, travel and life in the South. Sometimes I’m motivated by something as simple as shapes, textures or a certain color palette. The more I paint the more I see the beauty in the world around us! #lifeofanartist
