..Living in the Midwest has influenced my style of painting and choice of subject manner significantly. Many of my pieces depict very common scenes I have experienced. As a child, I spent my youth playing on the riverbanks and wooded areas in Central Iowa. Even today, I continue to be intrigued with nature and the way sunlight and shadows help define the landscape. I continue to spend countless hours hiking and photographing the rugged landscape along the Iowa River near my home My goal is to paint relatively common scenes in a more dramatic and interesting way. Most of my finished works are the result of these reference photographs and on-location (plein-air) studies.
I have been fortunate to study under the guidance of several well established professional landscape artists including, Albert Handell, Marc Hanson. Susan Olgivie, and John Seerly -Lester. For the past several years I have worked primarily in pastels and acrylic paints. I plan to continue to explore these two mediums and look forward to many more years of painting and conducting workshops.
