I am an abstract painter living and working in Asheville, North Carolina and New Orleans, Louisiana. My current work uses mixed media on a polyester film that has a  translucent frosted matte finish. Because of its transparency it gives an ethereal appearance of floating in space without a ground.

Each layer is a dialogue with the layer underneath and has to dry for 24 hours before I can add another layer. The process is a synthesis of intuition, patience, and skill.  Each year I grow more and more in love with painting on this surface.  Something new and unexpected happens with each painting that excites me.

New year, New work, New show

I have been busy in the studio this year preparing for a spring show in Dallas.  I'll be at The Blue Print Store on Thursday, April 3rd along with artists Sarah Otts and Phil Durst.  The opening reception to meet the artists is from 5 to 8.   If you are in the area, please come by and check out my new work. 

I'm so happy to be represented by Blue Print in Dallas.  It's an amazing store of art and antiques owned by 5 interior designers.  And they love contemporary art.
