I’m an artist;  a wife, a mother of three boys, a sister, a daughter and a friend to many. 

I am a solopreneur,  a coach;  a trainer for Tony Robbins…  I’m an avid traveler, a southern belle living in Australia and a diehard South Carolina Gamecocks football fan.  I love the water in all forms and you’ll never find me far from it;  be it walking along the beach, on a boat, swimming in the waves or snowboarding down a  mountain.

Second only to my love of family is my love of art; especially painting…

I am a creator.  Welcome to my studio.

PAINTINGS

I’ve always got more than one thing going at a time.  

Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a political kick; what with this clown of a president we’ve got.  

 

SKETCHES

I remember a live drawing class I had once in college. 

For whatever reason, I dreaded it as I thought drawing was my greatest weakness.

 

CERAMICS

 

I once took a handbuilt ceramics class in college.   I built these monstrosities; really big, ugly, volcano like things.   And to add insult to injury, they weren’t just ugly, they were also heavy… 

Like, two-hands, use your legs kind of heavy.

Join me as I attempt the wheel.  (comic relief promised)

SEARCH BY SERIES

Politics

It’s no secret.  I’m no fan of #45…   At the risk of my family disowning me and alientating some of my friends, I decided I needed a way to vent my frustrations

Nudes

One of my first series I painted was a series of nudes from a live drawing class in college…  and I seem to come back to the human figure over and over again.

Rock Gods & Idols

Jerry Garcia, Mick Jagger, Miles Davis and more.  This is a series I’m constantly working on and adding to…

Jimi…  Keith…  Angelina…  & more

Fiji

Bula Bula.

Meaning: Welcome.  We love you.  Be Happy.

I have a very soft spot in my heart for this place and these people.

Home Sweet Home

Charleston, South Carolina is one of the most sepcial places on this planet and there’s no shortage of beautiful places as inspiration.

Portraits

No one in particular; just faces and emotions that moved me…

Sometimes I write About Writing
