About Me

Hello. I am an oil paint artist living in Georgia. I have been honing my oil painting skills for the past few years. Originally a reporter, writer, and photographer, I like to blend my photojournalism, creative writing skills and my love of literature by using photographs and literature as inspiration for my paintings, colliding three of my passions for the perfect union. Using photographs allows me to work in the comfort of my home studio. Painting mainly landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes, I enjoy exploring the depths of movement and composition to tell a story. I have always been fascinated with the sky. I’ve also always been intrigued by houses, buildings, and other structures, and wondered about the people who reside there. Painting allows me to explore those stories and let them play out on the canvas. I work in Athens, Ga. as a marketing coordinator for a large law firm and I live in Loganville with my two sons and our new kitten, Anakin. Many of my original paintings are for sale, but I can also do prints at a reduced cost. Please click the link in my shop to see available paintings and prints. I also do commissions upon request. If you’re interested in purchasing something, or just want to discuss an idea for a commission, please fill out the contact form. I would love to hear from you. 🙂
