My work encompasses many faces of Mother nature. From ethereal landscapes to the fragile inhabitants on which our ecosystem depends. Subtle layers of texture add interest and movement. I am an oil painter based in Asheville, North Carolina, USA. Throughout my life, I have lived in and traveled to many beautiful places across the US. The endless breathtaking vistas I would encounter on my travels would leave lasting imprints on my psyche, and are revisited often through my paintings. I have lived in the mountains of Western North Carolina for eleven years and continue to find this area to be a source of endless beauty, mystery, and inspiration. I hope my paintings are a gentle reminder to the viewer, of the immense beauty and peace that can only be found in nature.
