I am a Low Country artist located near the Savannah River and marsh area of Bluffton, SC. Art and my wife Nancy saved me from 3 different cancers. I love to paint outdoor scenes that invoke low country Americana emotion. My window sill series is particularly emotional for me since I've spent so much time in recovery staring outside while being in isolation. Come join me as my work continually rises in value and you can capture a piece of Americana that grows into a priceless family heirloom!

Me? I was a commercial diver, marine biologist, fisherman, marine engineer, boat builder, arm wrestler, athlete, friend, son, brother, uncle, father and now grandfather. My biggest achievement was marrying my wife Nancy because my life as I know it now started with her.
July of 2014 I started a running battle with melanoma. August 2015 I was diagnosed with non-squamous cell cancer of the buccal mucosa in the right trigone molar area of my oral cavity. A simple canker sore inside my right cheek spread to a lateral neck dissection, mandilbulectomy and a scapula tip harvest. In layman's terms it took 12 hours on the operating table to remove my jaw and replace it with with my shoulder blade! You can read my first hand account of this and my recent battle with kidney cance at "Laughing at Cancer" at Caringbridge.org . You will be asked to sign up but the site is totally free and you might know another person telling their testimony. Wen I first started feeling the effects of chemo all I could do was stare straight ahead. Hours passed without my marking time. Focused on the moment I felt free for the first time in my life. My mind could not focus so I sat in a timeless, motionless stare into the present. Small details took significant blocks of my attention span. I lost my sense of taste but grew an enhanced sense of smell. Faces of people took on an uncanny sense of beauty and my appreciation of love and life grew. My brother visited and thought drawing would help me connect with the outside world. Many days I lost myself to the beauty of looking out my window. Some days I was in isolation due to infections. Most of the time I did not have enough effort to draw but would put my pen done and gaze out my window at the beauty surrounding me.
Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation traded me my hair, burns and body parts for an inner peace I never expected. Pain waas a token price to pay for such a beautiful transition from a frustrated individual to a true believer in GOD and my fellow man. My strong desire is to convey this feeling I have to you dear friend. May your travels be easy and your experiences devine.
