Biography




 





I live in the Sandhills of Nebraska. It is through my images that I hope to not only share the images I see daily but also to share with the viewer the spirit and soul of the Sandhills. 
The images you see are an honest portrayal of what it is to live and work in this region. Through my paintings I hope to express the evolving changes of life, the changing seasons, knowing we live a vulnerable but blessed life.
My paintings are intended to be expressive. I want to evoke a memory and/or an experience from the viewer, to share my story.
