I'm thrilled to share that my piece "Low Tide" won an award at this year's CCAL Juried Show. This is the first time I was brave enough to enter the Masters category (versus Amateur) so I wasn't expecting to receive an award this year. Love that the jurors felt it deserved this honor. Thank you to Chris Groves for selecting my art for this award! And, thank you to Jaime Bohnke with S&S Destination Trucky's for sponsoring the award!

It's been a very weird time to have art in a Juried Sh...
I’ve been working hard on a commission recently. It’s a surprise gift, so no photos until the recipient gets it.
That doesn’t mean nothing else has been happening though! I’ve been busy creating monotype paper prints for use in creating textured, layered background surfaces and digital reference prep for future paintings.
I’m thrilled to report that, in addition to the commission piece, several of my works have sold recently (“Saluda River View”, “Kiss of Color” and “What’s Up, Duck?”). It’s always exciting when someone falls in love with one of my pieces! Two of these have...
I'm a big believer in the value to be gained by learning from other artists. As I embarked on my art journey, I was fortunate to find one of the best art leagues around is based out of Crooked Creek Park - just around the corner from us. It's been a real pleasure for me to serve as President for the league for the past two years. What a wonderful group of kind and talented people. I have learned so much from them and made many good friends.

Ahhh, the State Fair... Good times: deliciously unhealthy food, crowds, livestock, rides and... ART!
I'm happy to say that two of my recent works have been juried in for the 2017 SC State Fair Fine Art Competition. What the heck does "juried in" mean? For art competitions, a single judge is called a Juror. A group of judges that works together is called a Jury Panel. Art entered into juried competitions have their works reviewed and either "juried in" which means it is good enough to meet their standards and qualifies to compete. Art works which are not deemed appropriate or worthy are "j...
I'm excited to have another chance for my artwork to be on display. Michael's Cafe at 1620 Main Street in downtown Columbia will be featuring an art show now through August 2, 2017. The show, "Says Summer", includes a collection of summery artwork from a number of local artists. I'm very grateful to have been invited to include one of my pieces, a print of "Serenity". Many of the works are for sale as well as display so check it out - you just might find a piece you love (and get something good to eat as well).
I am grateful to have been selected as Spotlight Artist of the Month for the month of June.
My painting, "Charleston Harbor" is being exhibited at the Chapin Chamber of Commerce throughout the month. Stop by the Chamber during their regular business hours if you get a chance and you can see it in person. I am grateful that they have been a longtime supporter of the Arts in our community.
I'm excited to announce that I am a participating exhibitor in the Corley Mill Artists' Group Annual Show.
The show opens this week. I am lucky enough to be able to paint with this group most weeks. There are a number of talented members in the group.
