I paint directly from nature with thick, juicy oil paint, and a heightened sense of color. Changing light, wind, and wildlife make this a dynamic experience as I strive to capture the energy of a place with color, texture and brushstrokes.

I love nothing more than exploring new places that are wild and watery. I live and paint in the Southeast but also love to paint anywhere that my truck, canoe, kayak, and brushes take me.
