Painting has been and always will be a very enjoyable part of my life. My parents nurtured my love of the outdoors and all of its beauty. I've always seen things a little differently. When I look at landscapes, I see all of the color combinations in my mind that I can use to apply to the canvas. When I look at architecture, I envision the true soul of the building by searching into the windows and doorways. I'm inspired by local scenes and scenes from my travels. In the last few years I've begun to paint scenes from Scotland & Ireland. Scotland & Ireland have stirred my soul and given me inspiration I never expected. I have so many scenes pictured in my mind that I can't wait to put on canvas!

 

I've also begun designing and creating jewelry with sterling silver & natural gemstones. This is just another way for me to explore color and creativity.

 

I grew up in Shelby County, Ky. on beautiful Guist Creek Lake. My Style of painting consists of Oil on Canvas utilizing different tools such as brushes, palette knives & sponges. Although I specialize in landscape and architectural paintings, anything I envision can end up on canvas!
