I am a quiet painter seeking serenity and beauty while making artwork to soothe the soul.
Central to my work is to convey a unique sense of mood by illustrating the ebb and flow of seasons and time of day through unexpected color schemes and expressive marks.
HOW I GOT MY START IN THE ARTS.
The way that I have developed my style has evolved over the years, ten years since I’ve started painting in acrylic back when I was living in New York. After being given professional grade paint by a friend who works at Golden Artist Paint Headquarters, I began entering my work into juried shows and winning awards. Which inspired me to pursue a career in art. After receiving my Bachelors degree in illustration I began finding my own way of telling a visual story - through interpreting the natural surroundings.
If you are wondering why I paint landscapes…
My location has always defined my life. I was born in Southbridge Massachusetts, grew up in a quaint New England town complete with stonewall lined pastures and harsh winters, spent my teen years on a 87 acre farm full of rolling hills in New Berlin, New York. I then moved to the semi tropical growing city of Greenville, South Carolina while attending college in Marion, Indiana with corn fields as far as the eye can see. I have now lived in Greenville for eight years and I am particularly interested in the tangled swampy low country, even though I am technically living in the upstate and foothills of the mountains. Locations where land meets water is what I am drawn to most.
