I am a fine artist residing in East Tennessee, USA, near the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. All my artworks are created through freehand drawing without any trace assistance. I only resort to referencing photographs if the subject can’t be available in person, or when my models are troubled…such as my chickens, cats, and my dogs.

I prefer to work from life when possible. I strive for my paintings to look painterly, not imitations of photographs. It is immensely more difficult to create simplified and expressive art than to do a slavish copy of a subject. In order for a true artistic expression, one must be delicate to leave room for visual interpretation, akin to poetry rather than a transcript.

I have worked at several Fortune 500 Corporations and have a B.A. and an M.S. in management from B.U. However, I’ve decided to pursue fine art after moving to this beautiful state of TN, and I endeavor to produce beautiful works of art that I could share with my friends and family.
