A passion for nature has made wildlife, animals and the western way of life the primary focus of my work.
The beauty and diversity of nature and travels to the many National Parks and preserves, ranches and farms in America continually provide me with inspiration for my paintings of the wildlife and people in our remarkable country. I am drawn to intimate views of subjects and their surroundings and particularly love to portray the way light enriches the drama of a painting.
