about the artist
I am inspired by the Intracoastal Waterway, broad expanses of grasslands along the coast and the ever-changing seasons, colors, light, mood, and textures of the lowcountry landscape. In real life you often pass a scene or vista without taking particular note but my paintings encourage you to stop, look closely and feel the space. An easy, loose painterly style contributes to bringing this beauty to life in oil on canvas.
Although inspired to paint the sites and sounds of the surroundings, I am equally inspired simply by the discovery of the process. As Winston Churchill (an accomplished Impressionistic painter) put it, "Happy are the painters for they shall not be lonely. Light and color, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end, or almost to the end of the day."
My work can be seen in the LAA/Sound View Gallery at The Landings Palmetto Club, Skidaway Island; at local art fairs, shows and events; and here on my gallery pages.
