Welcome to my blog!

Here are a sample of some of my most recent paintings:

above: "O Time, Suspend Your Flight
(Black Swallowtail Butterfly + Imperial Moth)"
oil on canvas, 10"x8" 2009   SOLD

This painting includes a quote from French poet Alphonse Lamartine's "Le Lac. The translation, from french, is something along the lines of:
"O time, suspend your flight! And you, precious hours,
stop your course!"  

above: "Anticipation" acrylic on canvas, 18"x24" 2009

Earlier this fall, I was honored to have Anticipation be included in the juried N.E.W show at the Visual Art Exchange in downtown Raleigh. The oldest non-profit in North Carolina, VAE hosts an annual "N.E.W" (never exhibited works) show, said to be their most anticipated show of the year. I was honored to have my work chosen. 

above: "Stolen Moment, with Cardinals"
oil on canvas, 16"x20" 2009   SOLD

This painting, Stolen Moment, with Cardinals, was one of my first paintings completed in oil. I have been relishing in this medium, and am learning more everyday. Continuing with my Avian Series of paintings, this piece explores a dreamscape in which humans freely mingle with birds, where there is a connection with nature.
