Artist's Statement

Art has been the wellspring of my life beginning when I was four years of age. What a thrill to have my drawing displayed on a children's TV show! Creating became my impetus to study art, develop my skills and discover just what I'm capable of doing. My ideas come from observing people and places. As an artist, I view the world through discerning eyes. I look at people and visualize painting their expression or something unusual about them. Simple life events inspire me to capture a moment in everyday living. I have an unrelenting desire to portray what I see, seizing the light, color, movement, revealing a part of my inner self. I'm a true colorist as can be witnessed in my illustrations. I find the line in a life drawing intriguing, the lighting in a plein-air landscape a challenge and a portrait most compelling. While studying Children's Book Illustration at The Savannah College of Art and Design I renewed my inspiration to write again as I did for my college literary magazine. The character, Suzie Pops was reborn in my imagination. She began as a children's bedtime story character for my own children and grew from there.
