"Caught In The Groove OF Making A Dream A Reality"


Life as we all know is full of many emotions from experiences good and bad.  As an artist I strive to develop paintings that express past, present or future emotional chapters of not only my on Earth but for whom cross paths with one of my finished pieces.  My subject and style range on the art spectrum but I cannot seem to focus on one particular end for I feel that life is full of different styles, different subjects and of course many different feelings so why not express them all.

I studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design which led me to love acrylic paint.  Since, I have enjoyed expressing my ideas with vibrant acrylic colors.  At times one particular color is the focal point in many of my pieces which is determined by the path I am taking in life at the moment when I pick up my paint brush.  Of course there are times when I am creating a particular piece and my mind switches chapters.  At this time I have no control over what the finished piece will be and must work on it until it is complete.  All of my pieces represent a piece of my soul but they also represent another soul traveling on this planet.  It's a true blessing when the universe aligns one of my paintings to become a personal attachment to another soul.


                I appreciate you taking the time to gander at my dreams on canvas!
