I am an artist and author that lives in Western North Carolina near the town of Brevard where my photographic artwork of local natural scenery has been available online at Fine Art America since 2012.
Scenes of old barns & farm houses -- together with panoramic images of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachian waterfalls, are just some of my artwork on exihibit.
Many natural views of Western North Carolina throughout the four seasons can be found that include wonderful native flowering plants and local animals.
As an artist with decades of commercial and fine art experience, I have applied my knowledge of composition and contrast to my artwork which has resulted in a wide range of inspirational views.
My earlier artwork used a mixed media format such as acrylic paintings and ink pen illustrations -- but because modern photography offers greater options in recording natural imagery, I have focused my latest artwork efforts in that medium.
Although most of my artwork is photographically realistic, some of the work is also able to explore the abstract side of nature and thus create a more unique graphic image than conventional photography can.
I have printed many large quality canvas prints from my Epson Stylus PRO 9880 printer and have wrapped them on custom wooden frames with excellent results.
My personal gallery is now located at the PARI Nature Center within the campus of the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute near Rosman, NC.
