I am a North Carolina artist whose aesthetic is inspired by adventure and travel to foreign coastlines and influenced by art history.
As my native city Raleigh changes and grows, I love to paint the memories of the past as well as embrace the future. Many of my paintings are iconic buildings, such as Players Retreat, Char Grill, or memories of local favorites that evoke a sense of nostalgia.
Abstract pieces allow me to explore emotions, intuition, current events and so much more.
Expression, energy, color and movement are important aspects of my work. I primarily worked in acrylic paint but use other mediums such as oil pastel, conte, and charcoal to allow for a greater range of subtlety. A little whimsy appears when I use watercolor on rag paper, giving them a free flowing feel of delight.
