I have been drawing/painting since grade school. That passion for expression has grown stronger with each passing year. I have exhibited in the mid-west and since moving to Knoxville, TN area have been an exhibiting member of the Arts and Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville, Tennesse Artist Association and Fine Arts Blount. In September of 2009, Blount Mansion Visitors Center had a retrospect exhibit of my work. My work has also been on exhibit at several different restaurants in the greater Knoxville area.
Since moving to the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, I have been fascinated with the many parks, lakes and cityscapes available to the artist's palette. The natural growth and development of the landscape and the power of the mountains as well as the rich cultural environment of music, theater, ballet, jazz, symphony has provided a catalyst for the development of visual arts.
