I am an award-winning realist artist who specializes in plein air painting. I paint outdoors in a limited time and represent my vision of the scenery before me. I studied fine art at The Savannah College Of Art & Design and am a full-time artist.

I am currently painting the landscape of South Africa. I was born here but grew up in the US. I am exploring the various landscapes, flora, and fauna with brand new eyes.

The economy in South Africa is not as strong as it is in the US. This means that art supplies cost more and artists earn less for their paintings. This is why artists are not flourishing in South Africa the way they are in other countries.

I need funding for my art supplies and for travel expenses so I can paint the wide range of landscapes in South Africa. I love painting and I have seen how people respond to seeing artists painting en plein air. They become more interested in art and develop an appreciation for what artists do. This is the first step to creating an art community. An increase in opportunities for artists and better access to supplies follows. As a result there will be more local artwork and pride in the community.

I hope to lead by example and spread my love of art to others. I am very grateful for any contributions that help me reach my goals.
