Hi My Friends! Welcome!
I'm happy to present my artwork to you. I have a true passion for re-creating the wonders of this world with this amazing plastic medium, acrylic paint ! God gives us so much to inspire us, we need never look too far for the next wonder !!!
I discovered acrylics when I attended Auburn University over 40 years ago. My major was Design, which helps me understand the elements that go into creating a strong painting .
I also attended the Universitat Salzburg , in Austria for additional art training, as well as Universitat Heidelberg again for art training. That was a long time ago but it stuck...
I love to teach others who have an appetite to learn.
Painting is wonderfully fun and is a bit like working a puzzle....Its challenging, and pushes you to find solutions to a creative process that ( hopefully) results in something pleasing to the eye!
I have taught painting classes in private as well as public school environments for many years. I've taugh adult classes as well as private lessons. I love to teach, but I also love to paint for others. I've sold my paintings all over the southeast and have been a self -supporting artist for my entire career . I've sold to decorators , commissioned many pieces , have shown in a variety of galleries.
I'm from Alabama, but Atlanta was my home for most of my adult life. I came to the beach about 10 years ago, and have been involved in the art community in Seaside, Fla. and the 30a corridor.
I am available for commission and am able to replicate any of the paintings you see on this site in a different size. Of couse that means it will be slightly different, but I can match colors if you have swatches you would like me to match. All paintings are original paintings --these are NOT prints.
