Artist's Statement

A quote from Grant Wood describes a condition from which he and many of us suffer: taking too much for granted. Wood said, "...To my great joy, I discovered that in the very commonplace, in my native surroundings, were decorative adventures and that my only difficulty had been in taking them too much for granted." Woods' words ring with truth. My goal as an artist is to capture the wonder of the often overlooked ordinary, the commonplace beauty around us, those little details that make all the difference in our daily lives. The rough hue of rocks, lush blue woodlands, weathered wood grains, and distant meandering dirt roads never cease to appeal to me. I attempt to share the beauty from which routine blinds us. My work can be purchased on ebay or by contacting me personally.

Cheaha Lodge Upclose 8x10

I will always say that Cheaha State Park is one of Alabama's best kept secrets. The multitude of rock surfaces is one of the beautiful characteristics. Rocks are EVERYWHERE, in the landscape and in the architecture. Bald Rock Lodge is a beautiful old structure that has always captured my imagination. My friends and I spent an entire day trying to capture the beauty of this rock-strewn place.
