I am a self-taught contemporary fluid folk artist born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. I have been working with modern painting techniques since 2006 and find it to be the most rewarding passion I've ever devoted myself to. I am most inspired by the colors and landscapes of nature. I am forever chasing tangible representations of profoundly transient things, places, feelings and dreams. Color brings me tremendous joy in life. My hope is to bring art into the world that can be interpreted in many ways and enjoyed by all. Color pallets range from muted to vibrant in my many creations. I use acrylic, latex and spray paint to accomplish the textures in my work.
