I was born in Charlotte, NC, but lived most of my life in Miami. Five 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, and I post regularly in my Blue Ridge Mountains photo blog, I use a "Chinese" Kodak point-and-shoot for all of my work. I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Thanks ERIC. I always try to find unusual perspectives on popular places when I make my images. I can't tell you how many paintings I have seen of snow covered mountains with bare trees hanging above sofas in homes where real art is non-existent. None of those paintings were of Grandfather, but when I saw this view, that's all I could think of. It's a very special mountain, as we know. VANN

Fantastic view!!
