Solo Exhibit of Landscape Paintings to Benefit The Land Trust For Tennessee April 14, 2019

Please come join us for an afternoon of celebration and art!

The Land Trust for Tennessee has protected our open spaces for over 20 years now! From family farms, to city parks, to forests spanning thousands of acres, the work of The Land Trust has a lasting impact on people and places from Memphis to Johnson City.

Having grown up on a farm in East Tennessee, I have always felt a strong connection to the land. I was fortunate enough to grow up on a beautiful farm with views of both the Cumberland Plateau and the Smoky Mountains. A branch of the Tennessee River ran through part of it–the rolling hills and forests were stunning. In about 1983, our farm was taken by the county to build a large industrial park. As our farm was like a third parent to me, this event deeply affected me. It was a huge loss to see this beautiful property get demolished and covered over with roads and commercial buildings. I wish it had been preserved. That’s why I want to help the Land Trust of Tennessee continue its good work. They are committed to helping our state make wise choices for land preservation. Development is inevitable but there are smart ways to do it while still considering the needs of our flora and fauna, keeping clean water sources and aesthetic views. I was honored by this invitation to paint a series of paintings inspired by these protected lands. I have enjoyed painting streams, fields, skies and buildings too for this exhibit. Tennessee has breathtaking views wherever you go. We are blessed by the natural beauty that surrounds us–my prayer is that we can hang on to these lands for our children’s children.

A portion of the sales of my art will benefit the Land Trust. So please come to this event at Westhaven Realty, 1001 Westhaven Blvd. Suite 100, Franklin, TN 37064 to see my latest works.
