The Chowan Arts Center represents my work in Northeastern North Carolina:  http://chowanarts.com

The CAC sits at the end of S. Broad St. in Edenton, where nature meets eighteenth-century town planning.  Few places in the South so handsomely reward a visit.

I spent the happiest parts of my childhood in Chowan County, and I feel honored to paint the place and sell paintings there.  I will have a solo show in December at the CAC; more information on that in the next few weeks.

Figure drawings page

This site now includes a selection figure drawings.  Browse it on the page so named.

For a visual artist, drawing the figure is like playing scales for a musician: essential.  For anyone with eyes, figure drawings remind us of what we are.  We are not souls in bodies.  We are souls and bodies.
