Artist's Statement

As the population increases, the encroachment of residential and industrial development continues to destroy and overrun the surrounding rural life and the raw beauty nature holds.  My oil paintings are my way of creating a visual journal documenting my search for these locations and my endeavors to capture them on canvas.

The Southern Arts Society, Inc. (SASi) is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 by A.B. Mauney Snow and local artists. Our mission is to promote the arts by training the artist and educating the public to the many talents available in the community. We provide visual art displays in the community, scholarships for local students, and workshops open to all. A variety of classes in the arts and ceramics are offered throughout the year.
