Artist Statement

My artwork is born out of a love of the colors, textures, architecture and landscapes that I experienced as an exchange student and student teacher in France in the 1980s. After ten years in a corporate job, I found a more creative side in an antiques store in the early years of downtown Greenville's rebirth. Artwork I did on my store's floors and walls opened opportunities to do work for others. Not happy with traditional oil and acrylic faux finishes, I experimented with centuries old Italian marble plasters and earth pigments. My art has evolved from wall finishes in homes to works on canvas, wood panels and other objects. In addition to
finely ground lime and marble plasters, I also employ natural earth pigments, alcohol inks, acid stains, fossils and gemstones. I draw much of my inspiration from Impressionist and Art Nouveau painters of centuries past.
