For over a decade, I have been captivated by the mountain west’s landscape, animals and history. My aim is to capture some of the West’s spirit, strength and grace to share with others. My work harmonizes opposing forces. Traditional subject matter is presented in a modern way, balancing realism with abstraction. I have been a finalist for the past four years in the Art Renewal Center’s Annual Salon and the Oil Painter’s of America National and Regional Juried Exhibitions. I was in the top 100 finalists in London’s BP Portrait Award in 2017.
