My artwork is what fuels me. I am inspired by everything around me; the way the lights hit a tree, a bird’s wings in flight or just how the water rushes over the rocks of our rivers. My favorite things to paint or draw is wildlife, but I also enjoy landscapes, florals, portraits and even fantasy based paintings. I paint in Acrylic, Oils, Pastels and recently I started using Pan Pastels and absolutely fell in love with them.
I reside in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, but love the North Carolina side just as much and it is a short drive from my home. If I’m not painting, then I am thinking about painting. No matter what I do, I’m always excited to get back to my easel. I’m always looking for new ways to create. Besides my family, art is my greatest joy in life. I hope you enjoy my work.
