Biography


Thank you for visiting my website! Please linger awhile and enjoy the images of Nature found in my portfolio of works.  I am blessed to have lived amidst beauty from the red sandstone cliffs of Utah to the pastoral hay fields of the Yampa Valley. I have traveled the back country of the West on horseback and with a backpack, known powder mornings, deep snow-pack and lush wildflowered meadows,  climbed to rocky summits, and have drunk deeply of  Nature's presence.  Through my art, I hope  to convey the power of wild places and share that healing power with you. My art only begins a conversation. Your heart  provides the meaning.Awards and Recognition:
