Artist Statement:

Nature is my subject matter. I reside on the Savannah River so I am totally influenced by what surrounds that body of water. But my heart also goes out to my love of the mountains of North Carolina and beaches of South Carolina as well. The results of my painting may be representational or abstract, whatever my tools dictate.
