I am a self-taught artist living in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I began painting in earnest January 2013. With the help of several professional painters in my area, I have enjoyed critiques to aid my emerging style. I was recently accepted to the Foothills Painters professional group as well as the Uni 4 Visual Artists group both in central North Carolina.
As for my favorite way to paint, I love Direct painting. I like treading between realism and loose impressionism. Finishing a painting in one sitting is ideal. I may paint from life or paint from a combination of reference photographs with a limited palette to create my own work. I paint daily on my favorite medium- oil on hardboard. Doing abstracts keeps me loosened up from the details and fully engaged in color.
My favorite things to paint are frogs. I love them. However, you will not find me limited to them. They are simply my “comfort food” that I turn to when I need to feel good about something quickly.
I respect every other artist’s unique flare and I embrace opportunities to try new ideas from his/her experiences.
When I started painting, I was told, “Paint what you love.” And I do, Cheers!
