Painting is pure self expression. I love playing with our connection to the natural world and how that connection is expressed back to us. Although my paintings explore the dynamic forces in nature, Living in Asheville, mountains play a large part of my daily life with the sweeping views and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.

My modes of expression are various: oil painting, encaustic, cold wax, multi media. I love trying different modes to find the most dynamic expression for that piece.
