This is my first blog post. Welcome to my site. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a Professor of Art at Bluefield College. I work in ceramics, oils, pastels, watercolors, and printmaking. The inspiration for my artwork is from hiking the Appalachian Trail and experiencing the healing solitude of nature. I was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia and attended the University of Georgia and Pennsylvania State University, majoring in Ceramics.
