After earning a Master's Degree at NCSU, I enjoyed a wonderful career for thirty-one years as I was fortunate enough to enjoy teaching. Now, having retired, I am afforded the luxury of pursuing my passion for nature at its finest while incorporating it into my art. My art focuses on the natural world. From it, I am able to derive the true benefits of the beautiful blessings of life while living the new adventures of each new day.
My art is expressed through the use of acrylics, pastels, and fabrics. My recent incorporation of fabric in my work has added dimension as well as a larger variant of vibrant colors. As I paint, I watch the canvas evolve as it becomes an expression of my heartfelt emotion rather than a prescribed process. Each color or layer is a natural extension of the inspirations that flow through my brush and transform the canvas into a transcendent and exquisite work of art.
While experiencing the natural world, I am never without my camera. It matters not whether I am kayaking, hiking, or walking in my neighborhood, as well as any other outdoor activity. It's impossible to ignore the changing colors of the seasons and sunlight and moonlight as it reflects on glistening waters, or sunlight breaking through the trees, or sunsets over the ocean. There are a thousand more possibilities not to be missed. All of these images become a reservoir of inspiration that drives me to celebrate life through my art.
