graphic artist. fine artist. digital illustrator. photographer. designer. creator.
I am a self-taught artist primarily focusing on impressionist landscapes. Emphasizing exaggerated colors, while creating striking contrast that evokes a mystery and moodiness that arouses emotion. I often feature a very limited color palette creating simplistic scenes that are most captivating.
Connecting with my audience on an intimate level. Through familiarity, I strive to expand on their past, proliferating memories from years gone and Instilling those impressions upon them once again.
While growing up in the valleys along the Mississippi River my love for nature and art grew with me. I now take my camera almost everywhere I go, capturing scenes that influence me, that I can recreate on canvas, glass, wood or fabric.
I have previously been commissioned to illustrate four classic novels (The Thing From the Lake, Eleanor M. Ingram; The House on the Borderland, William Hope Hodgson; A Princess of Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs; Wuthering Heights, Emily BrontŰ) for an independent publishing company. Most recently I have illustrated another new title for the same publishing company. As well as being published in a dark fantasy/horror literary and art journal titled 'Dark Highlands Anthology.' Along with being published in Fine Art magazine, Fall 2011.
I have shown my work extensively throughout Winona and beyond; in art galleries, business offices, coffee shops, among other venues including juried art exhibitions. My paintings are also held in many private collections.
My photography centers around nature; insects in particular, but I find the simplest objects in nature fascinating.
