I’m from the south. I was born here and have lived here all my life. I love southern culture in all its expressions including art. Southern art, particularly in the form of paintings, helps tell the story of the south and its unique history. It also tells the story of individual artists and their reaction to, and influence from, working and living in the south. It is the stories of the many southern artists and their plights that first intrigued me and captivated me. Whether it be a still life of peaches or a mountain valley landscape or a coastal marsh with Spanish moss-draped live oaks, the wonder of the south can be found in paintings from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.
I have a very basic philosophy about art and collecting it: anyone with even a small amount of disposable income can purchase works of art from listed artists all the way to exceptional “unsigned” pieces. Some of my favorite pieces in my own collection are unsigned works. And there are countless less well-known southern artists whose works often sell for very reasonable prices, sometimes less than the costs of framed museum exhibition posters.
Please find on my site a great variety of southern art in a great variety of prices. I have works from well-established artists and works by lesser known ones whose work are just beginning to garner attention. If you’re looking for a particular artist or just looking for nice southern scenes, all at prices that you can afford, you've found the right person to help you with your search. Please enjoy the works I have featured on the site and don’t hesitate to e-mail with questions or comments. If a work has Price Upon Request, please contact me so we can discuss the painting in detail. Thanks again for your interest and welcome to the South.
