Biography / Artist Statement

I have a dedication to drive and walk the back roads of Texas and New Mexico, scouting for a lone tree on the plains, perhaps a cliff face on the escarpment, an aspen grove in the mountains, then creating a painting from the scene that flashes to my memory. High chroma and a variety of edges are my favorite effects to tell the story in a painting that is pleasing to the eye.

I started with painting instruction from William Hook and Albert Handell. From them I learned about the dedication required to be an artist.
