my life source and sustainer is Jesus Christ

More About Me

Several years ago I visited the Netherlands in the spring. I was entranced with the flower fields full of color; the open, flat landscape, and the moody weather that blustered and brooded, then blazed with sunshine. Here the earth and sky met very gently where the morning mist lifted off a canal. The horizon line is a significant element in my work as it is the place where infinite open space meets finite earth. The horizon line is a lovely metaphor for our human reaching for the divine, an underlying theme throughout my work. “For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God” Hebrews 3:4.  
Houses have been a favorite subject in my work for many years. I love the intimate way an open window speaks. Frequently I paint just a fragment of the house, a door and a couple windows. The scale is small, personal and intentionally inviting. I am also captivated by the feeling of freedom in an open landscape and my art truly lies somewhere in the dichotomy between narrow, domestic scenes and expansive, natural landscapes.
    I currently paint in a studio at Liberty Town Arts Workshop in Fredericksburg, VA and have gallery representation at Glave Kocen Gallery in Richmond, VA; Nichols Gallery Annex in Barboursville, VA and J Fergeson Gallery in Farmville, VA
