Artist Statement

“My paintings explore the whispers of the coastal salt air. That means living the soul of beach, birds, and people who surround me on Anastasia Island.

“I paint every day, and still it’s not enough. The world offers endless inspiration, and there’s just not enough time in life to paint all of what is possible.  Every second, nature shifts with the movement of the sun, clouds, and wind. My job is to capture a single magic moment in the life of mist and tide.

“My painting style is soft and loose and optimistic. It shifts seamlessly between contemporary realistic, impressionistic, and semi-abstract, depending on the moment. The difference is how I feel about what the world suggests as I place my brush on the canvas.”
