I moved to Hulett, Wyoming after graduating in 1993 with a BFA from Otis Parsons Art Institute in Los Angeles. When I was young I would open books and look at photos of the “Old West” with cowboys riding the open plains and wish I had lived 100 years ago. After moving to a very remote corner of our country, and working on ranches that still “Cowboy” in the “Old Ways,” I realized that the West I’d searched for as a kid was still there. The West is alive, it’s just hiding in tiny corners of our country, trying desperately to hang on and not be forgotten. My work documents this lifestyle. I work in Oil on Canvas, Chine Colle’ Etchings, Intaglio printmaking and Pittura Di Strati oil/ acrylic on board.
I was nominated by Southwest Art as the “Artist of the New Century ” and I won the Best of Show in 2002. I was the featured Artist of the Cattleman’s Western Art Show Paso Robles 2010
