  • About Me: I discovered my creative side over 40 years ago when I began photographing the beautiful landscapes in Asheville, North Carolina. Even then, I was intrigued by light, shapes, and color patterns. Now, many of my photographic images are extreme close-ups of small sections of larger, unusual elements –
    • rust on a truck fender
    • graffiti
    • discolorations on stone walls
    • bark on a tree
    When I get REAL CLOSE, I often see wonderful landscapes or whimsical images and try to capture them on film.

    If I had to categorize my style, I think "representational abstract" might fit. Whether it's in my macro abstract photography or my mixed media paintings, I usually need to be able to visualize something from the natural world - a landscape, beach scene, forest, etc. Although I had a period where I deviated toward a more traditional style, I am returning to what I enjoy most now.

    Although I still enjoy photography and can’t resist searching around old buildings and anything with rust or peeling paint, I felt somewhat confined by photography’s limitations. I wanted to add more depth and texture to my work. Influenced by my mother-in-law, Fort Myers artist Pat Eng LaVigne, I began by exploring mixed media. I incorporate paint and a variety of papers, fabrics, and items from nature into my work, sometimes using one of my abstract macro photographs as the background and building on it. Generally I create landscapes and seascapes, but occasionally I’ll end up with something a little different.

    Now I work in a variety of media, including watercolor and acrylics, as well as the mixed media. Most of my work is small to medium sizes. Subjects vary as I travel and come back filled with images to put to paper. Although self-taught for the most part, I have attended a number of workshops and classes to improve my skills.

    My works are in collections throughout the southeast and California. I currently am a member of several art associations in the southwest Florida area and my paintings and photo art have won numerous awards in North Carolina and Florida.

Do it because it makes you happy. If you do sell, great, but don't go into it with that expectation...

It is a lovely painting, but I do think a balancing element to the right of center would help. How ...
