The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in the Eastern US is home to Bears, Egrets, Alligators, and hundreds of other wildlife! People have also lived in the Swamp for thousands of years - the Native Americans tell of Big Bear and White Swan who saved their villages by ridding the land of the terrible Firebird. During the Civil War, Slaves retreated into the Swamp to hide. There are many tales of ghosts and other fantastical creatures who are purported to inhabit the Swamp to this day!

As a Fine Art and Consignment artist for over 30 years, I've worked in a variety of mediums, but primarily work in Semi-Relief Sand Sculpture. I've done a wide range of subjects, but specialize in landscapes, oftentimes presenting my love of the mountains and the West through my scenes. Beyond the traditional landscape, many of my paintings tie history or symbolism together to create a story or emotional connection with the viewer.
