For me, the South is a state of mind. It is both my place of residence and the destination of my art. I find fulfillment in seeking to capture moments in time...people and places that seem to speak directly to the emotions.

 

Having spent my life in the South, and particularly the state of Florida, I began at an early age gathering visual impressions of a way of life. This process has continued life long and has been the driving force behind my work. My medium is watercolor and inspiration surrounds me in this beautiful state.

 

Although reasons for painting run much deeper than I can understand, I do recognize a need to share a unique way of looking at a familiar and romantic part of this country. It has been said that art is seeing something for the first time that we have known all our lives.

 

I hope you can experience a portion of the joy that has gone into my paintings.
