I feel that I honor all American Indian people in my watercolors and collages, although I do concentrate mostly on the Plains Indian cultures. My collages are not limited to American Indian cultures, but reflect a lot of Americana – primarily the first half of the 20th century.
My subject matter requires a deep understanding of the life of the North American Native Peoples. I have traveled extensively in the Western United States and do detailed research before depicting a scene or event in my art.
Though largely self taught, I studied under Clint Carter, Mary Booth Owens and Morton Solberg before developing my own unique style of presenting my ideas in watercolor. My work hangs in collections from Georgia to California and has been exhibited in shows and galleries in the Southeast including the Georgia State Capital Building and the United States Congress.
I presently serve on the gallery committee of the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association and on the board of the North Georgia Arts Guild. I have been interviewed by The Northeast Georgia Living Magazine (Summer 2004) and the Northeast Georgian newspaper. My art was shown in “Experience Art” produced by the Georgia Heritage Center for the Arts. The Atlanta High Museum of Art invited me to produce an art piece for their charity auction in 2004.
