See Through
an Artist’s Eyes!

Come along with me as I catch the light, color, and clouds across the landscape.

In my latest adventure I’ve been deep in the SC/GA Lowcountry, creating my latest daily painting project.

Join me on this journey and get sneak peeks (~ 3x/ week) and special VIP previews of the new collections when they're released!
