A resident of Knoxville, TN since 1988, I left my first career as an English teacher of eleven years to become a muralist. In the following eleven years as an artist I've had the joy of painting for nearly 400 clients, in four different states, in six Parade of Homes, four Symphony Showhouses, and in numerous public establishments.

My specialty is trompe l'oeil (paintings that "trick the eye"), but I also enjoy painting in a variety of styles and themes. For "brave" clients I have fun mixing 3-d objects on the wall with the paintings. Besides walls, I have painted on a variety of surfaces including canvases, furniture, tile, lampshades and invitations.

My greatest joy has been in meeting and developing friendships with so many of my clients, designers and colleagues. While some people may enjoy my artwork, it has been my real privilege and pleasure to witness the "artwork" of God displayed in the interesting stories, personalities, ideas, and the unique artistic likes and dislikes of these people!
