When I first arrived in the Western North Carolina Mountains I felt the scenery to be just breath-taking. I immediately knew I had to make a home here. I moved to Franklin, NC not to long ago and soon became a member of the Macon County Art Association. I continue to learn with the many talented and passionate artists I see everyday. They are also an inspiration to me. Everyday this area and people are an inspiration to my pursuits as a true artist. I will try to do it justice within my art and I will strive to show the passion I have for it while encouraging others to do the same.
