Born in New York City 1961, my connection to the west began in my youth with visits to Cody, Wyoming, where my grandfather had owned the famous Two Dot Ranch. Family stories of cowboy life, as well as contact with my grandfather’s collection of significant western art made a lasting impression on me. Unified by light and color, my work hangs in private and corporate collections including Bayer, Mars, Cargill, King Ropes, and Apache Oil. Museum acquisitions include Whitney Gallery of Western Art and The Brinton Museum. Painting snow is an exercise in light. In this painting, I attempt to capture the winter coat of the horse, rider and landscape.
