I have been painting in Atlanta since 1985. A native of East Tennessee, I lived and taught in various parts of the South, before moving to the Metropolitan Atlanta area.
To immerse myself in my art, I left my career as a full-time educator, and continued my life-long pursuit of knowledge.
A love of nature, combined with an appreciation of movement in all forms, are recurrent themes in my work. My abstracts, landscapes seascapes, and still lifes, have earned numerous awards at local and national levels. An avid traveler, I am inspired by trips throughout the world, and convey my observations through my art. My paintings may be found in private, public, and commercial collections from Ecuador to Russia!
