I have lived in WNC for over 25 years. This place has my heart, and is why I continually paint the breathtaking landscapes all around us. 

When in my studio, I am always trying to recapture beauty, using photos taken while out in nature as reference; colorful reflections off of the lake, sunset from the grocery store parking lot, the way the beams of light fell through the trees while hiking trails. We are so blessed to be surrounded by amazing views everywhere we look. My hope is that my art draws the viewer into the peace that is found in nature.
