Living in East Tennessee, I am mesmerized by the beauty around me: the landscapes, cityscapes, people, animals and plants. Through reading, observing other artists and painting every chance I get, I portray the world around me. I am fortunate to have shown my work in local group exhibitions, galleries and juried shows. One of my waterscapes won “Best in Show” at the Tennessee Artists Association 2015 Art Exhibit.
I am self-taught and have been painting for over 45 years. I focus primarily on watercolors producing a variety of paintings from photographs from my travels to the beach, mountains and my back yard. You will find rich colors in my flowers, waterscapes, landscapes and cityscapes. Water is my favorite subject as it has so much color and variation depending on light, reflection and shadows. It can be realistic or impressionistic and lends itself to watercolor techniques.
I am a member of the Knoxville Watercolor Society, Fountain City Art Center, the Arts and Cultural Alliance, the Tennessee Artists Association, Tellico Village Art Guild and a signature member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society.
