Hello, I'm a watercolorist and photographer located in Atlanta, Georgia. I love to capture magical scenes from our beautiful world. My love of nature, travel and flower gardening is reflected in my whimsical paintings, and in my choice of photography subjects. This site was created for the love of art. Just wander around my little gallery, and look to your heart's content. Thanks for stopping by. Y'all come back, now.
Kaleidoscope Dreams was inspired by my love of dragonflies as spiritual messengers from the great beyond as well as their symbolism for enlightenment and change. Dragonflies are known as keepers of dreams in American Indian culture, so what better combination than a dragonfly and a dreamcatcher.

Fly Me to the Moon was inspired by my love of dragonflies as spiritual messengers. This magical creature, also known as the keeper of dreams in American Indian culture, seemed the perfect combination for a dreamcatcher.A favorite dragonfly quote: “I am the dragonfly rising on the wings of unlocked dreams on the verge of magical things.” – Aimee Stewart

Yet another bouquet picked from the garden of my imagination. This floral was inspired by a severe case of spring fever during the gray, dreary days of winter. Those days seem to be a thing of the past now here in metro Atlanta. I drove though the charming downtown area of our city earlier, and noticed the flowering trees have all slipped into their colorful gowns seemingly overnight. Wishing you a beautiful day!
