As a watercolor painter, I see unlimited color and subject matter out there waiting to be painted!

I learned well the art of using the “loose and juicy” medium of watercolor while a student in the Cincinnati public schools, and have loved it ever since. Today my palette is filled with bright, sunlit colors that flow from my brush as I capture a special place, a moment in time; even a mischievous cat or two. Whatever catches my eye or imagination.

I studied painting at the Cincinnati Art Academy, then went on to earn a B.S. in Design at the University of Cincinnati. For the past twenty-five years I have enjoyed success exhibiting and marketing my paintings, winning numerous awards and placement in private and corporate permanent collections in the U.S. and abroad.

It has also been a special privilege for me to share my vision and enthusiasm for painting through teaching workshops both locally and when I travel or exhibit.

Every painting is a pure and happy experience for me, and when that painting finds someone who feels that same happiness, the painting is complete. I'm always looking for that complete painting!

I exhibit throughout Georgia and Alabama, selling my work, including signed copies of the award-winning book The Elf on the Shelf which I illustrated.

In addition to purchasing from the web, you may also buy prints and other pieces directly from my home studio and gallery. Contact me via the email address below to make an appointment!
