Artist Statement

My work as an artist varies from representational to abstract/impressionistic.  I am known for details in my representational watercolors, unusual webbed backgrounds, and my abstract/impressionistic alcohol inks.  Each piece of art contains a fragment of myself as an expression or form of exploration.  Feelings and emotions are a part of each painting reaching out to the viewer to enjoy the painting as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Mixed Media paintinga are done on Yupo paper, wood panels, or tiles.  Many include a polished geode in the final painting.  My landscapes are inspired by the natural beauty of North Carolina as I split the year living between the eastern and western parts of the state.
