The Artist Says:

"I doubt that I will ever run out of subject matter. Every idea has the possibility of magic in the form of paint."

As you will see, I enjoy painting many subjects. I have interests in painting the figure, landscape and still life. I have painted many subjects from travels, which may include figures, buildings and landscapes that catch my eye. I am inspired and energized by a setting or scene in a foreign country because it will naturally be very different from my home surroundings in Colorado.
Colorful, energetic brush strokes and the palette knife technique give a strong, painterly impact that I enjoy. Painting en plein air is always a one-session experience where spontaneity rules. I prefer painting in oil from life in the ala prima style, usually finishing the painting in one or two sessions. This allows me to maintain the same energy and mood throughout the painting process.  It's all about the oil paint expressing vibrant color and interesting texture. 
I am a long time resident of Colorado. After studying fine art at Colorado State University, I pursued advanced painting studies both here and abroad. Honored to be selected for Quang Ho’s prestigious Professional Studies Class at the Art Students League of Denver 1999, I consider that experience among my most profound artistic influences.
