I developed what celebrated author Pat Conroy called a “Lowcountry Heart” on my first trip to Kiawah Island and Charleston in 1992. Whether it was fishing on the Kiawah River, oyster roasts at Mingo Point, strolling along East Battery, or spending countless hours walking the tree-lined streets South of Broad, I was hooked. My original oil paintings strive to convey the deep and abiding beauty of the cradle of life in the Lowcountry, its’ saltwater marshes. The marshes are constantly changing but always present. Light interacting with water, marsh grass, distant trees, and endless cloud formations creates unparalleled beauty. My work endeavors to capture the light, depth, and sense of place that can only be found in the Lowcountry.
