You will see, in the future I will live by my watercolors.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I have quite an eye for finding that beauty in some bizarre places.

I was born in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Eventually I will die here (not anytime soon, I hope.)

In the meantime I intend to paint everything about this area that I love.

That includes mountains, trees, old chairs, white squirrels, barns, houses and anything else that catches my eye.

I may see something and paint it 20 years later, but I never forget that image. (Too bad I don’t have that memory when looking for my car keys.)

WNC is my home. I have no plans to leave…but I do plan to paint anything that’s not moving.

I hope you enjoy the images I created as much as I have enjoyed painting them.
