I was born in Charlotte, NC, but lived most of my life in Miami. Three years ago, I moved back to North Carolina, finding a magical mountain chalet just north of Lake Lure. My work is mostly nature still lifes, and I use my history as a landscape painter to influence my composition and use of color. My art can be seen at www.Miami-Art.com, and I post regularly in my Blue Ridge Mountains photo blog, www.blueridgeimpressions.org. I use a small Olympus point-and-shoot for all of my work. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
