I see the world with the volume turned up.
My art is a visual diary of the places and people I observe, inspired by travels near and far. From the spectacular natural beauty surrounding my home in Eastern Tennessee to the distinctive lights and personalities of cities, there’s nothing that I love more than using vibrant color to capture these venues and make them my own.
I do much of my work in my studio, although I also paint outdoors in the natural landscape to sharpen my observation skills. I'm attracted to landscapes with dramatic angles, impressive skies, and natural bodies of water. In my cityscapes, I like to bring beauty and emphasis to aspects of urban environments that many of us would normally look past as we rush through our daily routines. These paintings capture a range of subjects, from dynamic, down-the-street views to intimate portraits of anonymous individuals.
