First Friday Reception: September 2, 6- 8p
410 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 170, Raleigh NC 27603
I enjoy creating, no matter what I am doing. I have always had an urge to ‘make’ things since I can remember. I find myself truly happy when I am creating something pleasing to the eye. I look at every painting as a way to improve and grow. I learn something from each and every painting that I complete.
I am originally from Woodstock, New York and have always been creating something. From the early years of finger-painting on rocks in the creek bed behind my grandmother’s house to present. After a long hiatus from painting, I have returned to it originally as a cold weather hobby, but after creating the first acrylic painting, I was immediately hooked. I started looking at everything around me in detail, noticing colors, shapes, light, and shadows.
I enjoy using bright colors in my work, and enjoy painting a variety of subject matter. Depending on my mood, I can go from painting flowers and animals, to abstract figures.
I consider myself to be an emerging artist, as I am just starting to display my work. To date, I have displayed my art throughout the Cary and Raleigh area with shows for First Friday at Alter Ego, Bottega, the Untied Arts Council of Raleigh. In addition to several group shows around the Cary Area. I also display artwork with Local Color Gallery located inside 311 Gallery in Raleigh. I am a member of the Fine Arts League of Cary, Visual Art Exchange, and the Durham Artists Guild. I have work in private collections in North Carolina, Tennessee, New York, and California.
I also enjoy practicing hot yoga, riding my Tennessee Walking Horse, and traveling with my family.
