For as long as I can remember the West has fascinated me.

Its landscape draws me in to experience the vast expanses of prairies, canyons, forests, and powerful mountain ranges that have been home to my family for generations. I see huge valleys, cool rivers, wildflowers, boulders, majestic trees and wild colorful skies. They become a blend of images in my mind that blur the line between reality and abstraction.

The light is always powerful and present in my work as a painting unfolds suggesting memory of place. My paintings are based on thoughts about magical natural places that have been worshipped and revered for centuries.

Creating art that suggests something beyond that which meets the eye is a way of exploring the relationships that ancient cultures have had with the land forever. Experiencing and observing the natural landscape is just as compelling as creating a visual image of its many secrets and mysteries.
