I live in the midlands of South Carolina and want to share the beauty I see in the countryside with you.  I have a degree in Art from the University of South Carolina.  I like to draw old buildings, and new ones with interesting architectural details.  I love to paint pictures of the countryside 'en plein air' or outside where I can catch the open air, sunshine and shadows to share with you.

I believe that contemplation of fine art can be uplifting to the spirit. The countryside is a constant source of inspiration to me. In my paintings I attempt to paint the emotions these scenes bring to me. I find the rich, sumptuous texture of oil paints appealing as a medium because it lets me portray deep shadows as well as the many moods of light with my ‘en plein air’ landscapes. I want to share nature in its purest form, the sense of peace that the forest can bring to a person, the quiet calm of a seldom traveled dirt road or the serenity of the sunlight shining through the trees. I hope that I’m successful in bringing these feelings to you through my artwork.

After I earned a BA in Studio Art from the University of South Carolina, I painted from photo’s in my studio for many years. I love applying layers of glazes to bring a translucent quality to my paintings. I frequently focus on architectural elements in the manner of Edward Hopper, a favorite artist of mine. These paintings call up feelings of nostalgia and isolation.

;

Now living in rural South Carolina, I’m surrounded by nature in its purest form calling on me to paint it. Being among farms, ranches and forests is such a contrast from my former city and suburban life that I want to share this beauty with you. I decided that the best way to portray these rustic landscapes is with an impressionistic technique I learned from Ilona Royce-Smithkin, of the PBS shows, ‘Ilona’s Palette’ and ‘Painting with Ilona’. I paint these landscapes out of doors or "en plein air" to let me catch the feel of the fresh air and open sky. My painting style is influenced by Monet and VanGogh, you’ll find my style somewhere in between. I hope my artwork will help you treasure the beauty of the countryside as I do.
