I have a great love for the outdoors, spending much of my free time paddling, climbing, and hiking. This love is reflected in the essence of my paintings and sculptures. I paint primarily in oils, reflecting a variety of styles and my sculptures combine the feel of the natural world coupled with sparks of modern elements. I am the founding member of the Triad Outdoor Painters, a group of local artists who paint together in the NC Piedmont and Foothills. For info about TOPS, go to www.triadoutdoorpainters.com. I am also the Vice President of the Muddy River Arts Association and I live in Winston Salem with my beautiful wife Amy and our sweet dog Sidney.
