As an artist, my passion lies with interpreting the light on the land, primarily the rolling hills, picturesque creeks, and historic areas near me. Through both plein air and studio paintings, I attempt to give a contemporary response to the landscape with consideration to environmental issues in the still undeveloped areas that reveal the heart and soul of my home state. To achieve this, I use oil as the medium in my attempt to create expressive and pleasing paintings that will last a lifetime or more.
I consider my paintings to be a reflection of my artistry and view of the world. It humbles me to know individuals appreciate my art; in fact, I have been told the soft, welcoming compositions and colors of my landscape paintings bring on feelings of nostalgia and are reminiscent of locations visited in the past.
