I create art that makes my heart sing.
When I look at an object, listen to music, or read a good book, I want to feel a resonance with it. So, that’s the kind of reaction I hope to get with the art I make. For me, art making is about exploring an endless series of what ifs. A blank canvas represents limitless possibilities. Sometimes I find what I want in the making of it, rather than working toward a preconceived idea. It becomes a search for color harmony, compositional balance, and a state of flow. It’s an exercise of exploration—texture, paint, scrub, repeat—until I feel satiated. Physically working with various materials, experimenting and analyzing, while finding that vital sense of flow is what gives me the most satisfaction.
Contact me about a commission
If you’re feeling the love, but don’t see a piece that’s quite right for you, drop me a line. I try to make commissioning a special artwork as easy as possible.
I received my degree in Fine Art from Fort Hays State University in Kansas in 1993, and I’m honored that my award-winning art is now collected throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
My other artistic passion are the pet portraits I’ve been commissioned to do for the past 25+ years. The ability to translate what I see into a painting or drawing is a talent I feel lucky to have and happy to share. Sometimes clients tell me they talk to the drawing I did of their deceased pet. That’s the best because I know I have done my job well—to give you something so real you’ll relive that memory or feeling every time you look at it. You can see the collection at Petable Portraits.
I also work with Joe Camblin at Jozee Designs where I am a graphic designer and illustrator. Joe and I have created a wide variety of websites, printed material and other interesting design projects for our clients. See our website, logos and other graphic design examples at Jozee Designs.
I hope you feel like you know me a little better now. I assure you that I take the greatest care with all of my artwork whether it’s a commission or a piece that you see on the site now.
I do my best to deliver your artwork in a timely and professional way. Let’s work together!
