"I grew up on a river in Southwest Georgia, where the waters slow down and settle, and much of my childhood was spent on, in, and around this water. I think that the beauty and mystery of this place were revealing something that was beyond the material, something spiritual...my first notions of joy? Whatever it was, whatever it is...that is what I am striving to communicate in my painting."
