I started painting while living on Saint Simon's Island. For a self-taught beginner, seascapes seemed to be the most natural place to start: I was surrounded by the ocean and beautiful marshlands!
While living on the island, I found an excerpt in an article entitled "Becoming an Artist" and taped it to my sketchbook. It reads:
You try something. Explore it. Change it. Rework it. Sometimes, destroy it!
And you start again. Each time you can discover something new.
Every time is a challenge!
I re-read this from time to time to remind me that art is much
like life…an ongoing adventure!
Since I have moved to the Atlanta area, most of my work is studio-based. These works in oil are images taken from my personal collection of photographs. Years of painting from nature
has helped me maintain a quality of freshness in my work.
