My fascination with the natural world and the history of past generations comes from a childhood in the quiet woods of the Berkshires, and as an adult, the haunted landscapes of Faulkner's Mississippi. The thought of history repeating itself or being remembered has led me to an intensive curiosity to paint portraits of people from our past, often unknown but relatable. My love of animals and their simple perfect connection with the natural world is just as alluring to me, and wonderful to paint.
After studying for many years with Master Realist Artist and Art Historian Nellie Fink of Southern Berkshire County in Massachusetts, I lived in Taylor Mississippi and found a love for oil painting using found materials as canvases. With a base in classical art studies, my paintings are experiments deviating from the precise into the visceral.
