I am currently a resident of Elliott County, Kentucky. I am mainly a self taught artist who has been working on perfecting my art for the past 15 years. I have paintings in private collection nationwide. Including several pieces that were accepted into the 2008 Project for the Cancer Hope Lodge in Philadelphia, Pa.
I work in oil, acrylic and pastel; the main focus for my art is the natural beauty that is found in nature. I choose to work with the palette knife because of the texture and life that I feel the knife brings to the canvas.
Living here in Kentucky is like a dream come true for a landscape painter such as myself, for there is so much untouched beauty all around me here; I so look forward with great excitement to being able to interpret and capture that rawness and beauty on my canvas.
My background includes teaching painting, through a community college for several years. Working as the art director for a non-profit organization that worked with at risk youth, combing the therapeutic benefits of art and equine skill building. As an artist, I know, how the very act of creating art can help one find themselves. Thank you and enjoy my work, for I truly enjoy creating it.
