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”.
