Landscape Oil Paintings of the Carolinas -Mountains, Marshes, Seascapes, Clouds   

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mesmerized by the beauty of the ever-changing skies, beautiful cloud formations, and light, I paint the marshes, seascapes, mountains and clouds of North Carolina-.my hope is that the observer will feel a serenity and connection with nature through my art.


With oils on deep gallery-wrapped canvas (which requires no framing!), my technique involves glazing with thin layers of paint- each layer must dry before adding another layer to allow the luminous soft quality to appear.


Thanks to the UK based cloudappreciationsociety.org. several of my cloud paintings have been featured on their website.


Also, a very large thank you to my growing number of clients for your continued support and for your positive comments!
