“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.” – Michelangelo
Welcome to my website. I enjoy painting contemporary figures and landscapes in oil. I can often be found in my studio in Jackson Hole or painting plein air nearby. Wyoming is a new love for me and it’s beauty is seemingly endless, from the majestic mountains to the mystery held in the forests, the quiet of wide open spaces allow me to explore everything in between.
My training has a foundation of traditional methods. I enjoy the challenge of using traditional painting methods to create contemporary works. I have studied at the University of Texas at Austin, The Art League of Houston, and the Konigs Schule in the Hague, the Netherlands.
I am guided by painting honestly and what I believe is relevant to today.
My list of favorite artists is ever changing, currently my favorites include Richard Diebenkorn, John Singer Sargent, Eduard Villard, Mikhail Vroubel for his magical compositions, and August Renoir for the absolute charm in his paintings. I believe we are all blessed with some sort of creativity. I feel fortunate to have discovered my gift and to have the time to pursue it.
I live in Houston, Texas and Jackson Hole, WY. I am happily married with two children.
