My college education began with three years training in architecture but finished with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, concentration in pottery at the Memphis College of Art. My first art career was as a studio potter in Friendsville, Tn for 25 years. That was followed by careers in decorative wall finishes, faux painting, cabinetry finishing and the occasional mural project. It was studying “trompe l’oiel” (fool the eye) imagery with French master craftsman Michel Nadai that nurtured my interest in creating representational art.
Never one to sit still, in 2009 I turned my attention to fine art painting in oils which first developed into a concentration on photorealism, paintings intended to look like photographs. Now my work is moving into a more expressive style that reveals the brush work that builds the image.
