*Painting “en plein air” landscapes around Asheville, North Carolina, I seek to capture the personality of a place in simple shapes and bright colors. I layer on thick, staccato strokes over bright under-painting to create excitement and life.  Bright, colorful, impressionist and modern, my paintings evoke a lyrical realism bordering on the abstract.
