Meet the Artist
Having been recognized back east for my “Figure Landscapes”, I wondered how I would transition to my new status as a western artist. I started painting landscapes, both en plein air and in my studio. It has been 15 years since moving west, and my passion for oil painting has grown with each passing day. I thrive on the textural effect of brush strokes on my canvas and how they enhance my intuitive style of painting. Working with shadowed winter landscapes, summer streams and rivers and incredible wildlife inspire my work and feed my soul.
My process is the foundation of my work. I usually stain my canvas with a transparent color. I like the bits of stain that show through in my completed pieces. Then, I study my photos and plein air pieces to select a subject. After sketching a few compositional guidelines and refining the more detailed areas, I block in the major areas of color. I work the whole painting at once, clarifying, refining, and defining until the piece is complete.
