Invited Artist 2019


Beholden to raking light, vibrant color and quirky composition, my work has quickly garnered regional attention

and inclusion in notable collections. Above all, I am moved by powerful light and a vivacious “color story".

I endeavor to express--not overly define.


A largely self-taught painter, my formative years in Nebraska and college in Iowa are evidenced in pieces depicting

rural towns and plains. A zeal for mountain life inspires mountain and ski themes, and several years in NYC has driven my passionate focus on urban themes.
Colorado's varied landscape allows me to explore all my subject passions without leaving home!
