Site Artist StatementTitle
Miracles, moments, ideas, and beauty speed by often never noticed again. In my work I capture these moments, the emotion they invoke, and freeze them in time. I paint the aspects of reality worth remembering, noticing, and sharing.
Value, color, and edges allow endless possibilities for experimentation and manipulation. Holding to naturalistic tenets, I create works where a heightened sense of emotion bends reality into a deeper, experience.
I am influenced by artists whose work captured contemporary scenes that now serve as windows into history. Artists such as Remington, Bierstadt and Vermeer painted the reality around them. Living in the rapidly evolving American west, my life inspires me to capture the reality around me in hopes that posterity will one day view my works as a window showcasing the characters, passions, and rewards of the new American west.
