Southern Magnolia

This Magnolia is the third of my southern flower series.  Magnolia leaves are as unique and beautiful,  as its blossoms.  This painting will hang along with its Gardenia companion piece in the dining room of a sweet Southern lady.

Gardenias in Bloom

This is the second painting in my series of southern flowers. Gardenias grace the porches and yards in our southern homes.  Their lovely scent reminds me of childhood visits to my grandmother's house.

Wading in the Chattahoochee

The reference photos for this portrait of Sam were taken by my very talented daughter in law, Lauren Carroll.  He was wading in the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta.  His favorite part of the painting is the red boat!

It is an honor and privilege to get to know young families by painting their beautiful children.  These portraits of twin boys will be hung beside a portrait I painted of their older brother several years ago.

Home Sweet Home

I am happy to share with you that I have a wonderful new happy place in Auburn.

My studio is the culmination of many years of dreaming (and observation) to determine workspace, organization, storage, but most of all, a place to create.  I welcome you to stop by.  Please email me at to arrange a time to visit.

Belle and Ellie

I was commissioned to paint these two best friends this year.  I had painted their individual pet portraits in years past as they joined their human family.  They are actually celebrities, as you can see below as they grace the cover of Laurens NOW magazine!  I am sure Santa left these two cuties lots of treats.

Christmas Angel

                              Glory to God and merry Christmas to all!

This Santa is painted on a 6 x 6 linen canvas...just the right size for tabletop, mantel or shelf Christmas decorating.  He is available at the LocAL Market in downtown Auburn.

Deer hunting season has arrived, and my family is happy to be in the woods.  I prefer to see these beautiful creatures, rather than hunt them! 
This painting might be a nice gift for the deer hunter on your Christmas list.  Email me at for more information.

Samford Hall

This painting holds memories for me of my wonderful college experience at Auburn University, just a few years ago!  I gathered with artist friends recently to paint this iconic tower on the lawn at Samford Hall.

You will find this painting in a fun new gallery, LocAL Market, directly across College Street  from this tower.  It's vivacious owner, Lauren Duncan, showcases work from 80 Alabama "makers".  All of her offerings are handmade from local Alabama artisans.  Please stop by to visit, as we are often in her shop painting or helping out.
