I am influenced by my environment, nature and the land. Living on a ranch in northeastern Texas for a number of years has increased that influence tremendously. I am surrounded by trees, pasture lands, sky, pond and a meandering creek. Looking out my windows in the house or the studio is such an inspiration…even in bad weather; I find something every day that has escaped my attention before.

With all this said, I don’t set out to paint what I actually see in nature. It just comes through as I work through my process. Whatever medium, I strive to let the painting speak to me. I make revisions when I see that is where the painting is going. I have a conversation with the paint and the process.

Without a social or political message, surface quality, color relationships and design are what I am most interested in when painting.

My paintings are exhibited across the USA in galleries, online galleries and my website.
