Color and texture are my passion and drive my aesthetic. Inspiration comes from observing the small vignettes in everyday life that touch my soul. Working in various mediums and genres, a special love of portraiture as well as intimate landscapes has developed. Capturing that moment in time is important to me as it is never exactly repeated. I am a Floyd native and one of the founding members of the Floyd Artists Association LLC, now A NEW LEAF GALLERY. The interactive experience of instructing students in portraiture, perspective, value and composition (PVC), and color theory enrich my work as I endeavor to pass on my love of creating. Commissions are welcomed.
