Colourful Contemporary Art

I am a professional artist and art teacher.
I paint the tenacious bits of wild that defy human activity in a manner inspired by
my fascination with fossils and designed to make the viewer look deeper.
Studio visits by luck or by appointment are welcome.

Pods and Corals

Walking the beaches in South Carolina we collected shells, sharks teeth and very occasionally coral. I like the aesthetics of the combination of milkweed pods and coral, also the irony of two elements of the natural world both threatened by the activities of man, collected and put in a jar/vase.

Also inspired by South Carolina, and the arts of the Gullah culture, my students have been exploring shell mosaic, with great results, here are just a few.
