I'm often inspired by a still life full of color in my studio and from the western landscapes of Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. I started painting in high school and continued taking fine art classes while attending the University of Colorado. There I learned how to prep my own boards and experiment with different paint application and techniques.
“I have continued to build on the basics of painting: technique, color, design and perspective. I love a good challenge and the outdoors! Often I will carry my gear (or drive my side-by-side) as high as I can to get a great view. I have had my share of adventures with paint on the trail!”
My love of the west has had a consistent theme. During the spring, summer and autumn months I live in a cabin in the Crazy Mountains of “Big Sky” Montana, while the winter is spent in “Colorful” Colorado. Come enjoy this painting adventure with me!
