When people ask me who has influenced me as an artist the most I say, “ Mother Nature”. I love nature and the outdoors with a passion. I’m a gardener, a hiker, and someone who loves to travel and paint landscapes “en plein aire”. I grew up and lived in the Midwest most of my life and have worked as an artist for many years.
In 2004 I moved to Taos and began to paint outdoors. Northern New Mexico and the western states just feel like home to me and I can’t help but express my love for the West in my landscape paintings.
