“My inspiration to paint is simply the challenge of portraying what my mind’s eye sees and sharing that image with others. It is the natural progression of my desire to create and my life long love of art.
Although I have a special love for western and figurative art, I paint a broad range of subjects, never limiting myself to one particular genre. Early in my career I designed and illustrated for an art studio, which benefited me a great deal in this regard. It didn’t matter what the subject was, I had to fulfill the clients’ requests. I painted everything from John Deere tractors and airplane instrument panels for Rockwell International to politicians and wildlife. The common denominator remains the same: to share my vision of the subject by painting it to the best of my ability.
Capturing challenges such as glass, silver, a breaking wave, or the iridescent sheen on a bird’s feathers keep me striving to improve my skills. I’ve learned a great deal in my 50 years of painting and will continue to paint and learn as long as I am able."
