My exquisite paintings pack and engage messages of hope and inspiration so that we might begin to treasure what we had taken for granted. I offer an intimate look at nature to draw strength, wisdom and compassion. I use well defined strokes and painstaking details in my art to capture the beauty of wildlife in the surrounding natural environment. Inspiration was born from the widening movement of light to create imagery that I feel is unlike any other artist. Working primarily in oil my paintings are intense and expressive.
The aim is to create paintings that invite audiences to participate. Engaging and capturing the audience in some way. My works engender the audience to imagine, speculate or further investigate. Hopefully the lesson learned is that life may be serious but we must take time to enjoy the fleeting moments, staying childlike makes all the difference in the journey! I am a native to Colorado where I currently reside.
Inspired by my favorite time of day sunset with the ever changing light and drama of the changing skies. Capturing that perfect moment of light and shadow as they reflect and beam off the landscape, constantly changing color of the shadows and different values. Spending meticulous time and attention to detail, purity of realism and translating inner vision to outer reality. When I am not out investigating the clouds and mountains and watching the local wildlife, I can be reached painting at my Colorado studio.
