Paintings and other visual arts 


(click on a picture to be taken to my portfolio)

I paint primarily from life, which is also known as painting en plein air (in the open air). It is a challenge to concentrate on the information that is in front of me; to absorb sight and sound, from temperature to atmosphere and then transfer that vision/feeling onto canvas or paper. It is a pursuit that continues to stimulate me in this beautiful landscape of the Southwest, where I live. So, with a determination to express the natural beauty in my life, I strive to paint the essence of light and mystery in Nature, my primary teacher. My practice involves learning from peers, the masters and many hours spent immersed in the natural world.

I have exhibited my work in galleries, museums, and universities in Colorado and New Mexico. I am an active member of the Plein Air Painters of the 4 Corners.
