Art is a reflection of what the artist sees and feels then translates into a visual medium. It can be moments in time, a glimpse of the past, a shared esperience, a noticed detail or a mindfulness of place. My pieces often contain some or all of these things. I work in a representational style with traditional oils, brushes, ink and markers on canvas, wooden panels or paper. Many of my paintings and drawings are of Denver locations such as downtown, Larimer Square, Capital Hill or the 16th Street Mall. I have also painted and drawn in many locations around the country.
I am a native Texan but have lived most of my adult life in Colorado. I have a BFA in Secondary Art Education from Texas Christian University, with graduate hours from the University of Houston and continuing education classes from the Art Students League of Denver where I am currently an Instructor. I am a full time self employed artist with my own studio. My work has been exhibited in several galleries in the Denver area, as well as in San Francisco and in juried shows in New York City and Chicago. I was honored to have one of my paintings was on loan to Sen. Michael Bennett's Senate office in Washington D.C. for a year. I have paintings in a corporate collection in Denver. Three of my drawings have been published in two different drawing books, 'Strokes of Genius 5' and 'Strokes of Genius 7' with North Light Books Publisher.
