Biographical Info

I spent my formative years in rural Montana, surrounded by the experiences that small town America provided. Having an initial inclination toward figurative painting, I painted commissioned portraits for clients across the country. Brightly lit neon signs capture my imagination, prompting me to combine figure painting with the nostalgic pull of neon. I’m drawn to strong compositions, vibrant color, and bold lines. My paintings are widely appealing, often reminiscent of classic Americana. My work has been featured in various publications, including Southwest Art Magazine, Western Art & Architecture, Big Sky Journal, Montana Quarterly and Western Art Collector. My paintings have won Awards of Excellence from both Western Art Collector and Southwest Art Magazines, and I received the BOLDBRUSH award in 2016.
