...with Arts at Denver since 2015


"The subject is light and contrast. The fascination is in the way light pours, splashes, and wraps around everything we see and contrasts the everyday with the extraordinary."

After what I considered two incredible years, I graduated from the Rocky Mountain School of Art in 1980. My love of drawing began in 1976, as I studied Technical Illustration at The Denver Institute of Technology. I quickly found out this type of drawing was not enough to satisfy my love of drawing, and after working as a patent draftsman/illustrator/office manager in a small drafting shop… I wanted more. My employer casually remarked, “go to art school” and the path to being an artist was forged.
