JAG Featured Member Artist
“As an artist, I am fascinated with rich color and the infusion of light, which has a distinct impact on my paintings. My goal is to create visually inspiring subjects using light and its varied patterns”.
“My work has been inspired by the surroundings of my childhood and home state, Florida. I call the images I focus on “forgotten Florida”… old architecture, unique gardens and remote beaches and waterways. In addition, the techniques I have utilized have been shaped by studies which have taken me across the United States and internationally to France and Italy. Instructors and mentors have included such notables as Morgan Samuel Price, Alice Williams, Jean Chambers, Connie Winters, Jim Draper, Leonard Wren, Robert Johnson, Chang Quiang, Mary Garrish and most recently Dreama Tolle Perry.
As I continue my artistic journey, my style continues to evolve into what I describe at this time as relaxed post impressionistic.”
