I am an artist from Marietta, GA and currently live in the north Georgia mountains. I have spent the last 10 years teaching art and have now decided to focus more on painting. About 7 years ago I started plein air painting and fell in love with working outside. The intimacy of the subject it is what I like most about it. The focus of my work is on landscape and animal subjects. Paintings are constructed from photographs and plein air sketches. I enjoy painting the various textures in nature and displaying them in a scene. As an artist I feel like there is always more to learn.
