I was born and raised in South Louisiana and have spent the majority of my life in Lafayette.
I began drawing and painting at a very young age encouraged by one of my grandmothers who was a well known artist in her time. I also studied art at both LSU and USL. My favorite medium has always been watercolor.
I began painting watercolors as an adult about 14 years ago. I studied with other professional water colorists from all over the United States as well as Australia. I prefer representational painting (landscape, cityscape) which I have done on many trips around the U.S., Italy, France and Canada. I have paintings in offices and homes throughout this country and Europe.
I recently (8 years ago) built a studio that houses all of my painting supplies and my workbench. I continue to work on paintings and look for subjects of interest on a daily basis.
