“Capturing the drama in a work of art is what takes my breath away and fuels my passion to create. My paintings evolve from a religious experience that I stage on my easel. I frequently ask myself, even between brushstrokes, if my painting will evolve into one which could evoke such emotion – for without emotion, is there art?”

We have been coming to Highlands during the summer since 1997 and upon discovering Whiteside Villa knew we had found our home away from home in every sense. The location is convenient and the setting is absolutely perfect for those of us who love the mountains. Not only is the view absolutely breathtaking, we are literally in reach of the clouds as we enjoy the balcony and patio. Family and friends who have visited us during our stays are as enchanted as we are with the peaceful beauty of your lovely place. We are looking forward to our time there this summer.
