In my paintings, I try to translate my feelings of a place or an object onto paper with the same emotional impact that I receive when I experience it.
I have found that watercolor with its translucent brilliance that gives a sparkle quality
to the paintings and the spontaneity of controlled accidents lends a freshness
I prefer. Recently I have renewed my interest in oil paintings and am enjoying the ability of layering and glazing along with texture
that oil allows.
My favorite subjects to paint are nature, midwestern landscapes,
and the American West. Nature can exhibit itself through weathered
buildings, old trucks, rusty train cars, and structural details
