"As a student in Paris, I was heavily influenced by the vibrant impressionist paintings of Gauguin and Van Gogh. This influence is still evident in my use of strong colors and contrast. Through my work I hope to evoke a longing in people to become a part of the scene I depict. My art has won awards in numerous competitions in Alabama. I am presently represented by the Stonehenge Gallery in Montgomery."
