My art consists of bright vivid colors and light. I enjoy playing with color, and acrylics allow me this opportunity with great diversity. My exploration into the world of mixed media has been a discovery of endless possibilities. Utilizing different techniques such as stamping, stenciling and palate knife application and incorporating mediums like gels, pastes and found materials I satisfy my artistic inclination. I’m inspired by nature, architecture, interior design, and other artists. Most of my paintings contain both abstract and representational components. I strive to convey an element of beauty in all of my paintings.
I teach art to children K-5th at Ooltewah Elementary School and Belvoir Christian Academy through a program called Children's Art Place. For the past two summers (2018 & 2019) I was the Arts and Crafts Specialist for Pok-O-MacCready summer camp in upstate New York. I have also taught summer art camps at Art Creations and at Belvoir Christian Academy. In addition, I was a founding member of Mixed Media Inspired Artists and Broad Stroke Artists here in Chattanooga, TN. I have shown and I am currently showing much of my art in and around Tennessee and Georgia at the following venues; Reflections Gallery, Chattanooga Auction House, North River Civics Center, Michael's Fine Arts and Framing in Dalton, Exum Gallery, The Customs House Museum & Cultural Center in Clarksville, Harris Arts Center in Calhoun, Creative Arts Guild in Dalton and Erlanger Medical Center.
