I was an artist from the age of 4, drawing horses and other animals. My passion for art continued with my formal art education beginning at the St. Paul School of Art through graduate studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Drawing from my background in graphic design, I have a strong emphasis on color, design and drawing in my oil and acrylic paintings. Throughout my painting career, animals have been my major interest with abstract landscape being a recent pursuit.
My paintings are a result of a thoughtful, ongoing, creative and intuitive process. Creating art is a spiritual journey. It is somewhat of a surprise where a painting will lead me. I find that my paintings are more vivid and saturated than real life. I see color in a subject and intensify those hues in a painting. At times, just a title will evolve into a subject that I need to capture in paint.
One of my goals is to bring honor and respect to the subjects that I paint. As a creator of art, I want the viewer to have a positive connection with my paintings.
