My earlier work years as an educator, psychological examiner, and then attorney brought me to my current love for the creative process. The inspiration for my work is the glory of God and the beauty of creation. My art has been included in coloring books and calendars. I have placed best in class in juried art competitions. My creations have been exhibited at the Novadell Steakhouse, KY, Black Mountain, NC, The Sanctuary, Franklin, TN, the Hopkinsville Art Gallery, KY, in college art galleries, as well as being commissioned by F&M Bank.
I teach both private and group classes in the medium of alcohol ink and love spending time with creative people including my three grandchildren, ages 10, 12, and 14. You can often find me painting with my pup, Kingston, curled up quietly by my side.
I create art pieces that invite the viewers to be a part of the story.
How a blank canvas can become so beautifully interesting that you cannot quit looking at it and begin to see details you had not seen at first, fascinates me. Changing nothing into something is one of my creative goals. Transformation of a canvas from dark to light, bland to colorful, empty to full is my desire. As one appreciates a finished art piece, my ultimate joy is to see the heart of the viewer transformed into the story of the art.
