About the Artwork
Title: "Julie II"
"I painted this painting from a photo I took in Darien , GA. It’s near St. Simons Island. It’s a great little coastal town on the Altamaha River with nice fleet of shrimp boats."

About the Artist
The inspiration for my artwork comes from my surroundings and my travels. There is an abundance of painting references in nature, in rural and urban areas. I enjoy capturing the essence of marshes of the low country, the street scenes of bustling cities, the serenity of old barns of the country sides, and the manmade structures of boats and architecture. I can be found in my studio painting from photo reference or in the outdoors painting “En Plein Air”. I find that my expression in my artwork is somewhere in-between abstraction and realism, more like impressionism.
My art becomes a visual record of “my life”. It is my hope that as my art tells the story of “my life”, that it will much more importantly, point to the One who gives “my life” meaning.... the One who is the great creator, the maker of beauty and life, the ultimate artist, the One who gives our life value.
The Artists Place (TAP) Gallery Host:
The Artist Place Gallery, established in 2001, is located in the lobby of Crooked Creek Park and can be viewed during normal hours of park operations.
The rotating exhibit of fine art showcases a wide variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography and 3D. Originals and prints can be discovered here with new displays each month. Work is hung on the wall on both sides of the lobby as well as exhibited in the large cabinet on the right as you enter. Each piece of art is labeled with artist contact information.
