I was born and raised on a farm in the Midwest and enjoy living the country lifestyle.  My passions growing up are the same ones I enjoy now:  riding horses, enjoying nature and the outdoors, and painting.  My favorite subjects to paint are wildlife and western themes. I strive to create pieces of art that transport the viewer to another place and time, or even trigger a treasured memory.

My painting success has grown to national significance; I’ve had the honor of being Artist of the Year or Featured Artist for many of the national conservation groups such as Wild Sheep Foundation, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, National Wild Turkey Federation, and Pheasants Forever. Print sales for these groups have generated over 4 million dollars for wildlife conservation.

My major inspiration for painting is to capture the beauty of nature, rangelands, ranches, and their animals. I paint what I respond to emotionally and intuitively. Most my paintings are created with palette knife and brush, with multiple layers, and a variety of textures and moods. When I am out on the land with animals, I am restored to peace, to wholeness, to an indescribable calm; my paintings reflect my experiences.

Major Exhibitions include: Oil Painters of America Western, The American Plains Artists, The American Impressionist Society National Exhibition, Cheyenne Frontier Days Art Show, The American Academy of Equine Artists, Small Works Great Wonders at The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma, and many exhibitions in Utah.

The wild places and it’s many beautiful creatures have always been my inspiration. Living in Wyoming allows me to do what I love most – the opportunity to capture birds and animals in their natural surroundings in oil. Although only afforded fleeting glimpses of my subjects; I work to capture a gesture, an expression, a movement, a moment in time. I was honored to receive the Old West Museum Purchase Award in 2012.  I also received the Roger Tory Peterson Award for Exceptional Artist for Outstanding Depictions of the Natural World in 2014, and was twice awarded Best of Show for the Wyoming Conservation Stamp Competition. I’m honored to be chosen as the 2017 Cheyenne Frontier Days Print for my painting “Prairie Fire”.
