BioI am a third year resident physician at Vanderbilt Medical Center. I went to medical school in South Carolina and moved to Nashville 3 years ago. I am a fan of the great outdoors and picked up oil painting after I stumbled across the beautiful works in the Anglin-Smith Gallery in Charleston, SC. My favorite things to do in Nashville when I am not working are going to pop up acoustic concerts, relaxing at the beach at Percy Priest Lake, and perfecting my peach cobbler recipe. I have been using a homemade plein air easel, strung together with leftover parts of easels and old porchade boxes. I recently took the plunge and bought a Strada Easel. I hope this investment, along with joining this community, encourages and inspires me to paint more!
