I resided in Grand Junction from 1980 to 2000 and returned in April of 2018 from a sojourn in northwest Wyoming where I worked a variety of jobs while continuing to improve my art skills and further my artistic career in the areas of wildlife, Western, and landscape painting. I am now working solely as an artist. My primary medium is oil paint; I also work in watercolor, gouache, pastel, and acrylic.
I paint wildlife, landscapes, portraits, and figures using contemporary and impressionistic style. I especially like creating dynamic compositions using animal and human figures in action and to capture “human emotion” as a means of using physical form to express my spiritual vision. A lifetime of learning sound principles and dedicated practice are both the means and the end to finding joy and fulfillment in my work.
