Artist Statement and Bio

I create acrylic works.

I am drawn to western and southwestern subject matter. The stories of the people of the west (ancient, native, and European)  Capture my imagination and my heart. Hardships and violence – but also the strength of the indomitable human spirit are the forces which shape what I seek to capture. The extreme environments, unkind and demanding of all those who exist within them, takes my breath away. Here I think we can see the movement of God’s hand across our physical landscape… from the mysteries of the deserts of the American Southwest to the desolation and soul-bearing vastness of Wyoming, my heart and my hands yearn to interpret this powerful natural expression on the canvas.
