About Me

My Background


A native to Colorado, I graduated from the University of Colorado and most recently, studied at the Art Students league of Denver.  I teach and work in Architecture.  My free time is spent drawing and painting out of my studio in Pine...and riding my Quarter Horses' Skippin Thru Smoke & Trinity.

Artist Statement


  I use marks to paint contrasts that define space. By pushing color, texture and value I try to define a realistic setting. All of my pieces contain a bit of myself. What I see every day is likely different than what others may see. An abandoned building or a sunrise over a commercial facility have a meaning that isn’t noticed in this time of technology and overwhelming information. I paint so that others may realize the silent grace, rhythm and peacefulness that exist in this busy world.

My Inspiration


The dialogue between the West as it is today and what it once was.
