Biography



I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota and have loved art since I was a young child. I now live in Littleton, CO. and spend my summers at 11,200 ft. elevation in the rugged Rocky Mountains near Alma, CO. 
I first became a cartoonist and caricature artist and later ventured into figure and landscape painting with pastels and oils. It's been a very insightful journey, and a fun one. I still find myself looking at nature like a painting waiting to happen. 
Art has always held a central place in my heart. I'm a rather social creature, and enjoy talking to people and hearing their stories. I'm drawn to people, history, and cultures, discovering that art has created a deeper sense of connection with others. I strive to create art that's a conversation: Art that invites you in, allows you to be a part of the painting, sparks a personal memory, or might even give insight into your own story. 
When it comes down to it, art is just another way to share with you. So grab your coffee and let's sit and talk. Or paint. Or both.
