Welcome! I have been drawing since I was a small child. I thought there was magic in being able to make something appear on paper. I'm not sure if it was that sense of power, the joy of creation or the quiet contentment I felt while drawing... but whatever it was, I dearly loved my pencils. I have been exhibiting nationally, in both solo and group shows since. I enjoy encouraging new artists and I'm thrilled by the awakening of my students' creative talent. I hope you enjoy my website. Please explore my galleries, try out the drawing tutorials and view my works in progress. Even better plan a visit to my studio in Fearrington Village, NC.
