Artist Statement

My paintings reflect a personal relationship with my environment either at home in the mountains of West Virginia or in my travels. My many sketches and photographs provide material for my watercolors/mixed media paintings, and has even influenced my jewelry designs.


Whichever media I use, I work in a series starting with a representational theme and pushing it as far as I can in developing the concepts. I do not set a limit to the number in a series, just working it until it seems complete. Often a series will be revisited because I can’t release it or I have had an insight into a new compositional arrangement.


I feel fortunate that I live in the beautiful state of West Virginia and have been able to work at what I love, both as an art teacher and an artist/artisan.
