I am an artist who enjoys working in acrylics, ink and pen, colored pencils, and mixed mediums. Some paintings take 30 to 40 hours to complete, others - painted in an uber-Expressionism style - only a few hours. The subject and mood dictate the speed, emotion, color palette and layers. I have only recently begun to paint in the liturgical arena, a practice I find spiritually as well as creatively fulfilling (though I often wonder if one can separate the two as they are intrinsic to each other). I regularly practiced and exhibited until my late youth and had pieces exhibited in multiple shows in North Carolina and South Carolina, winning blue ribbons, and one of my paintings is even buried in a time capsule! I, more or less, stopped painting for roughly 30 years before finding a deep solace in the practice a few years ago. I find joy and fulfillment in creation. My favorite painters span across time and space, but a few that come to immediate mind are Andrew Wyeth, Vincent Van Gogh, Kadinsky, the early Impressionists, and all from the Hudson River School. On this page I have prints available. I also have originals. If you are interested in purchasing one, please contact me.
