BIOGRAPHY

 

Artist Statement

 

 

" Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no Art."  Leonardo deVinci



"Just go out and talk to a tree. Make friends with it." Bob Ross  :-)

 

For as long as I can recall I have loved to draw and paint. I always strive for realism in my oil paintings. Living in rural Yell County, Arkansas has provided me the opportunity to capture the beauty of the landscapes, wildlife and horses.


Though I am largely self-taught I have attended several workshops taught by prominent artists. I've been painting professionally since 2008. 

 

I have been competing in miniature art shows across the country since 2012.
