I have been primarily known as a portrait artist for over 25 years, though I enjoy painting anything that “grabs” me! I have done many commissions. I work in oils, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, pen and ink, scratchboard, mixed media and graphite.  I have been teaching drawing and painting to hundreds of students since 1994, many of whom are now doing commissions themselves.

I was the resident artist/instructor at Black Mountain Center for the Arts for eight years. I am currently an instructor at Arrowhead Gallery in Old Fort, Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League in Black Mountain and Lead Instructor at River’s Edge Studio in the Asheville River Arts District.  I also hold many workshops in these areas as well as in Hendersonville and Tennessee, Texas and Florida.
