I began loving and appreciating art at an early age, studied fine art and graphic design in college then worked almost 30 years in different aspects of corporate America. Visual arts and creative studies have been a lifelong passion for me and I've recently made the joyful transition into painting full time. In preparation for this endeavor I attended workshops and studied with artists and art teachers I greatly admire; Elizabeth Ross and Airy Knoll Art Farm, Nancy Bush, Michael Workman, Dee Beard Dean and Lyn Asselta. My medium of choice is oil but occasionally work in pastels. My current work focuses on expressing the serenity and spirituality I see and feel in these low-country coastal lands I thankfully call home.
