I love to paint whatever catches my eye and touches my heart. My landscapes, in oil and acrylic, are inspired by color and light filtering through trees, bold shadows, dramatic clouds and the movement of water. My informal portraits show people and animals just living life to the fullest, with a touch of humor!
Many of the inspirations for my paintings are the beautiful places that are close to my home in Franklin, Tennessee; the Harpeth River, Radnor Lake, and the Warner Parks. Other inspirations have been from traveling and commissioned pieces, which I have had the privilege to do.
One of my favorite and most fun art forms are my custom designed letters for names painted in watercolor....a great gift for a new baby, children, or a wedding. I have been designing and painting my letters for 25 years, and each time I try make each letter unique for you.
My philosophy is simple: I want to share my impressions of God's beautiful world and to show wonderment, even in the smallest things!
