I am an artist living in the beautiful foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I work in pastels primarily painting landscapes and pet portraits. I have always been an artist in some form or another. I spent most of my life working in the commercial art field, not turning to fine art till later in life (what was I waiting for???). I began my career in fine arts the traditional route, with oil painting. After a couple years I saw some beautiful work in pastels and decided to try them, so I purchased a set of Rembrandt pastels and I was hooked! I now work mainly in both oils and pastels and occasionally I will dabble in acrylic and watercolor.
