My love of living in the South is lavished into my subject matter as an artist and author, inspiring me to categorize my work as “Southern Ambiance.” I spent the first few years of my life in Charleston, South Carolina, and returned later in life for a few more years in which Charleston and the SC coast became solidified as my creative muse. Living in the Carolinas most of my life has surrounded me with wonderful landscapes, a temperate climate, and the traditional charm of a place where good manners and faith matter. I believe art and stories are only worthwhile when they are filled with beauty and hope that survive despite all life’s challenges to make them ugly and hopeless.
My novel "Painter Place" is a blend of my roles as an artist and a writer. Tidbits about the the life of an artist and the basic elements of art are woven as a thread throughout the Painter Place series. I've also tried to give a nod to most areas of creative expression, such as music, photography, and writing. The Painter Place series portrays creative expression as a gift that can be used to contribute to the world in positive ways. "Painter Place" is available online and through Electio Publishing, and will eventually become a series. The Youtube trailer can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od8mQ8FviQc
I live life “seeing” artistically, always composing paintings in my imagination from everyday experiences. I believe the traditional mindset that art is meaningful when it has beauty and is understandable to any viewer. Whether using pastels, acrylic, or watercolor, I hope to create paintings with timeless compositions that are universally appealing.

Examples of venues where my work has recently been exhibited are the NC Statewide Pastel Exhibition 2013, the NC State Fair, and the Atlanta Pastel Exhibition. My current artist affiliations include the Pastel Society of NC, in which I served as Exhibits Chair, and PaintNC Plein air painters. I enjoy teaching and doing community art events to meet people, paint in public, and speak to groups.
I serve as a volunteer position in processing the Audio Visual Resources at the Colonial Baptist Church library in Cary, NC.
Nothing I can ever do in this life, no relationship I have here, and nothing I can study and teach to anyone would have any meaning apart from my salvation and faith in Jesus Christ. My joy in Him and sharing His love with others keeps my perspective on doing it all for His glory.
(Ephesians 3:20, 21).
