Oil on Canvas

Deep shade provides the only cool spot in a southern summer. A shady creek is a bonus.
I am a child of the south. Hot, humid summers with frigid air conditioning, iced tea all year around (sweet, if your taste runs that way), and children brought up to be polite to their elders. Born in Virginia, raised in North Carolina, resident of Virginia all of my adult life. The south definitely influences my painting. Landscapes and lush summer flowers. The peacefulness, the isolation, the sense of home. I work to capture it all.
I graduated VCU with a BFA in painting and printmaking.
