Born and raised in Michigan, I moved to Colorado to goof around and ski for a season, promising my parents I would come home in a few months and get a “real” job.  Long story short – it’s been almost three decades and I’m still here, calling Durango home.  In addition to my art, the “real” job is family:  a husband, two daughters and a feisty rat terrier.
Inspired by travel and the natural world, my painting process involves applying a dozen or more layers of paint, with different layers exposed throughout the painting.  Often, water is applied and then removed along with layers of paint to reveal the marks below, resulting in surprising effects that then influence the direction of each piece.
Custom commissions are always welcome. I’d love to create a custom painting for your home or office.  Please contact me directly to get the ball rolling! Currently scheduling for 2018.
