Banner Elk, NC

Hi Everyone. I am an artist in love with color and inspired by Nature and by Spirit. Living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, I have daily and hourly opportunities for viewing and enjoying the wonders of this landscape in all seasons. Being retired from regular employment, I also have the luxury of spending daily time in meditation and spiritual studies. When I take paintbrush in hand, I often start with one inspired idea and just begin painting, letting the brush lead me to what's next. Most of the prints on this site are of 18 x 24" or 24" x 18" original paintings done in matte acrylic on paper. You may also find some prints of original watercolors (especially flowers) and some acrylic on canvas. I hope you enjoy viewing the paintings as much as I enjoyed painting them, and of course, if one calls to you to live in your home, I would be most honored. Feel free to contact me at with any questions or special requests. I look forward to hearing from you and any comments you may have.
