1995 - 2005   My Old Life

Here are some more of my earlier Murals from my first life as a painter when I used the name Gazelle.


Although my career only started in 1996 and having never had any training I was very fortunate to have made a living, won awards (only two Patron Awards but I only entered two shows) but I also had quite a bit of publicity for my works. This included being a guest on the show, Southern Styles with Diane DeVaughn-Stokes which was prior to my meeting her in the play a couple years later. I also was interviewed on WBTW Ch13 News, Joy 92 Radio, and had numerous write ups in local as well as regional newspapers.

Ocean Bay Club, Myrtle Beach

This trompe l'oeil mural is in a very long, narrow and dark hallway (27 Ft long x 3.5 Ft wide. Nothing is real except for the lighted wall sconces. There are no Blocks, marble columns, or openings to the water. At the end of that hallway the actual ocean lines up with the mural, giving it a beautiful illusion.
