The Upstate of South Carolina has been my home since the age of 12.  It's hardwood trees, hills and mountainous views, not to mention the gorgeous South Carolina coast inspire me on a  daily basis. So staying true to myself I draw from Light, nature and hometown.  Therefore I tend to paint what feels restful, hopeful and uplifting.  This serves as my purpose and brings great fulfillment.

    As a self-taught artist, oil paint became my favorite medium allowing me to work the wet on wet, alla prima, technique. Professional wood panels and canvas are my primary surfaces for paintings.  Some places I have shown my work are: Open Art Studios in downtown Greenville, SC, local shows and festivals such as "Art On the Trail", "Browse and Stroll","Artisanville", and the Pendleton "Spring Jubilee".
