I am a mixed media artist working in acrylic and spray paint.  I have a series of paintings where I use spray paint drips in an expressionistic fashion to juxtapose line and textural color spaces which are applied with my fingers.  I find creating the lines on the canvas to be a thoughtful process as I can decide the mood of the painting by the length and direction of the spray paint drips.  Working with color is very enjoyable for me, and I then focus on filling in the spaces around the lines to convey feelings through color blending and textured strokes.   

I also enjoy painting realistic portraits of people and pets.  Working with a close up focus challenges me to continue to refine my skills of painting with a brush as well as observing the finest details in the photo reference.      

I recieved my Bachelors of Art degree in Art from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1992.  I painted some commissions and exhibited a few works.
