I walk in two worlds all the time. My left brain and my right brain competing for attention. I grew up in South Carolina, a first generation college graduate, and spent fifteen years in corporate America. Even then my creative side would not be held back. I was in marketing and advertising. I left corporate America and a partner and I started an advertising agency in the Caribbean where I lived for nearly twenty years. Hurricane Hugo came and destroyed our business but I was fortunate enough to pursue another passion...I went to medical school! I loved the Caribbean and went back to work there for several years. Retired now, I've finally returned to one of my great passions -creativity. I love painting and art, photography, writing mystery novels, and gourmet coking. I’m actually a trained chef!
My artwork is mostly in acrylic and watercolor; 'abstract realism' I call it. I have a Caribbean Collection consisting of geckos, hummingbirds, sailboats and lighthouses. I enjoy painting subtle landscapes and cityscapes of all types. I have true abstracts and flow paintings as well as some mixed media. Recently I've ventured into digital art. Stay tuned for that!
