I started painting in 2008, in a small studio on Macon Street, McDonough. I did not have an intention to paint on the scale I do today, but I soon discovered that art is a door best left closed if you do not intend to give it all you got. I soon realized that I had a passion for the arts-I discovered the experiences and the people I have met have helped me develop into the artist that I am today. I take great pride in helping others discover their talents and love for the arts; I still find that I am in a constant cycle of learning, myself.
I served two years on the McDonough Arts Council and became involved in various charities in Henry County. Through the arts I have helped raise revenue for organizations such as: A Friends House, Henry County Special Olympics and The Kinsley Grace Foundation through art donations for Auction.
I have hung my art in various restaurants around Henry County, most notably the Seasons Bistro under the management of Lynn Loggins, and Gritz on the Square. I have won awards through juried shows hosted by the McDonough Arts at the Windsor Gallery with a first place award and one honorable mention. I also had the honor of accepting McDonough Arts People’s Choice Award at Art In The Park. I consider the People’s choice award my most honored and am grateful to the people who take the time to give art some merit. It is never easy putting your art out there for people to judge, but once you get past the fear of it, you soon find that you just go for it, and let it happen.
I paint strictly for the joy of painting today and enjoy working with other artist of all mediums.
Art, like life, is always subjective; you can find art in all things if you look for it.
