About

I was attracted to the architecture of the South and particularly the many abandoned and re-purposed homes in the rural farmland surrounding Cary and started painting some of these in 2014. I also began a series of Pet Portraits, first as gifts for friends, and later on commission for others.

My newest series in a set of "Conversations" paintings that have grown out of a series of sketch sessions from my travels abroad in cafes and coffee shops.

I enjoy drawing, my first media love, and currently am leading a figure drawing class weekly starting in November, at of all places, The Cary Town Center Mall. The human form is always inspiring and I regularly attend drawing sessions at The Page-Walker  in Cary and Imurj in Downtown Raleigh.
