Near a natural waterfall, halfway between Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC sits a little yellow house , that in the spirit of Vincent Van Gogh's "Studio of the South" dream, serves as home and studio to Artists, where art is created, stories are told, gardens are grown , dogs sleep, berries are picked, soup is made, coffee is sipped, dreams are dreamt, and everyone is welcome.

Face du Jour 2

When visitors wander the studio they tend to be drawn to my paintings of large faces. When creating these works I lay down fresh marks into just made marks, creating marbled blends of color. Often I add words, either obviously or subliminally. I'd like to think these features are what draw attention but-The head alone has an iconic almost postage stamp or money-like authority that commands attention.

Good Riddance Valentine

Winds of the north, south, east and west,
Carry my affections to where they'll be best.
Let her heart be open and free
And carry them away from me.
