I live in Richmond, Virginia, a city with enough music, art, and historic neighborhoods to make me feel as at home as I did in my native city of New Orleans. While I am a corporate copyeditor, I still think of myself as a painter, and I bridge those worlds with heavy reading, creative exercises, and networking with others in my field who also like building and sharing ideas.
My pet paintings are light-hearted and sentimental. And my human portraits are glimpses of stolen moments, quiet but still colorful and expressive. They all provide a challenge that is both scientific in application and zen in feel; hours slip away while I address anatomy, mood, color, and texture. My hope is to capture the spirit of something or someone and leave you with a work that you will enjoy visually engaging with every day — something you will wonder at and hold close to your heart.
