I grew up camping in the Rocky Mountains of Utah and developed a great love for the outdoors. I didn’t think anything could be more beautiful than the West. I now live in Kansas and have found that I love the beauty of the plains as well. I’m always in awe of God’s creations, and try to convey my emotions and passion for the places I paint. I have sold paintings around the globe and have been fortunate enough to win awards such as The Arts for the Parks, Oil Painters of America, and others. However, I feel my greatest accomplishment has been painting large murals for Mormon Temples; this has always been a goal of mine and has been an extreme blessing to my family.

The focus of my work is the West that endures—a blending of the West we live and the West of our imagination. I begin each painting by looking directly into the sun. Bold forms and iconic silhouettes are the centerpiece of my work, including high contrast images and scenes I chronicle while on location on ranches and rodeos. I incorporate historic patterns, imagery, and illustrations as I blend old and new, historic and contemporary, reminding us that our land – and life – is a continuum that is forever evolving.

My work is included in museum, corporate, and private collections nationwide and has been featured in top publications. I am represented by top galleries throughout the West. 2017 marks my third year at CFD; my painting “Belvidere” was featured in 2016 as the official show poster.

I am a self-taught wood carver and have been carving professionally for 40 years. I live deep in the forest of Central Oregon, close to the subjects I choose to carve. Wildlife wood carving is subtractive art, with fluid lines and interactive images. I let the wood itself dictate the forms and my subjects come alive. All we know is beauty when we see it. That is the line I follow. Beauty is truth.

Some of my finest work can be found on cathedral doors and Las Vegas casino walls. I received Best of Show at Western Art Show in Indian Wells, California. I have been listed as who’s who in Western Art and a frequently featured artist on OPB’s Art Beat. Many articles and a book have been written about my process.
