Artist Statement

Art has always been my passion. After graduation from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree,I enjoyed a long career as a graphic designer. My clients included Andy Griffith, Aaron Neville and CeCe Winans to name a few. Then by chance a client asked me to create a series of paintings…that one project re-ignited my original love of painting. I retired from computers and client meetings to pasturesand tubes of oil paint! I paint every chance I get… whether the beautiful Tennessee landscape just outside my door, wild flowers along a path or antique vases filled with zinnias. For me,inspiration comes from the Master Creator and the beautiful world He has given us. Currently I am an artist in residence at OnTrack Studios in beautiful, historic Franklin TN
