The Artist Says:

Keep it simple but keep it colorful!


Being creative has always been a part of my life. I grew up in Montana and have lived in several Western States but I do love the  beauty of Southern  Utah and it gives me a lifetime of painting material.    Different mediums, subjects, places, people and events continually shape me as an artist and give me inspiration. My goal is to communicate with the viewer the joy I see around me.  Besides the grand views  I also like to look closer to my subjects and paint what others may not see.   The colors and shadows of nature are a continual draw to me.   Listening to each painting to understand what should or should not be included is a lifelong endeavor.   Artistic influences in my life are always present in my mind when painting.   The advice and lessons I have gathered stay with me as part of my journey as an artist.  Painting is also healing process for me, allowing me to release the build up of my day’s  issues  and replace  with a reaffirmation of how wonderful life is.  I look forward to this period of transformation every time I pick up a brush.
