"When I start drawing an ordinary thing , I realize how extraordinary it is , sheer miracle." Frederick Frank

I am always on the quest to bring in line with my figures. It is easy to do with ink but painting with oil and 30 sec. gestures are challenging. Each color is a different 30 sec. pose. By changing the color the lines seemed to create movement. These were sold at a show in Mt. Pleasant. More to come.
I am a native of Charleston , South Carolina. My early artistic expression was through the lens of a camera where it was a passion to capture the unique expressions of the human spirit. That passion is still alive , but through paint brush,ink, and oils. I am most inspired when painting from observation of life and nature.
I am in my third year at The Art Academy University online MFA. My classes have challenged and inspired me more than I ever imagined. I am in my fifth year of being a member of The Charleston Artist Collective online gallery. It has been a great experience to be with a local group of artist who stretch with the monthly themes all the while giving back to our community a percentage of our sales. It is also a pleasure to be showing in a new gallery in Charlottesville, Va. with a talented group of artist from around the country.
