When I really think about it – in all the ways that matter, I have been an artist my whole life. I began my creative career as an interior designer in Atlanta. Being a space planner and designer, I noticed that a living space is much like an artist’s canvas. Both of them must have a balance of texture, contrast, shape and color.
Since discovering my passion for painting I have given it my full attention. My travels to Europe, Mexico, South Africa and Alaska have been the inspiration for much of my art. I love the challenges of painting figures, still life and landscape. My recent paintings using the palette knife are examples of my love for moving and mixing paint on the canvas.
The style of my art seems to fall under traditional impressionism – although I prefer to focus more on my creative process and leave the terminology to the art scholars.
I’ve been fortunate to have studied under some of the best artists from coast to coast. Through my teachers, I realized how light affects color and began painting with a radiant palette that I favor to this day.
I am thrilled that my paintings have been acquired by a broad group of collectors, both nationally and among my local art community.
