Soulful pauses captured to canvas™
Welcome to my web site! I am an Atlanta, Georgia oil painter who loves to watch light filter through leaves, sparkle on water, or otherwise glide its way across nature in a myriad of ways and am especially attracted to backlit scenes. When painting outdoors (en plein air), light first shouts around the edges and then slips through like a sultry siren.
I use oils because of their rich feel and slow drying properties which allows me to soften edges to a velvety glow. Some people have said that my oil paintings have a dreamlike quality to them, which is a great compliment because that is the feeling I am trying to portray.
My paintings invite you to wrap yourself in a safe dream, have a seat and stay awhile. Whether painting outdoors or in my studio, I hope my art invites you to slow down and experience a serene moment.
