I am a representational artist and my subject matter is portraits, figurative and wildlife. Moved by the beauty of majestic creatures and humanity, I am driven to share a sensitive, perspective through my eyes. The mediums I work in are oil, charcoal and graphite.
Nearly hunted to extinction, the buffalo has earned its rightful place in America. Their importance cannot be undersold and their resilience inspired me to paint them.
The elk inspire me because of its beauty and elegance. They are some of the most influential animals that help promotes our ecosystem.
I am always amazed by powerful grizzlies who play an important role as seed dispersers and regulate prey populations.
May these perspectives enrich the trail at your feet.
