As long as I can remember I’ve been an art maker. I’m not grounded in any specific artistic system. Art classes were a part of my educational experience from grade through junior high school. Of all the schooling received in those years, the arts served as an anchor for me.   

I'm drawn to primitive art and enjoy working in this style.  It often captures  the daily life, work and play of common folk ...  not bound by the necessity of precision.  There's a warmth and tranquility about it in the presence of turbulent surroundings and events of the day.  Soft/cozy in appearance, it can be an effective method to invite diverse audiences into difficult/ serious subject matter.   In my most recent project, Up From Down HomeI use this approach with the paintings to support the written narration of  my family's exodus out of rural Alabama in the early 1950s.  The book will be available June 2021.  Stay tuned!
