I have always been an image maker. My mother noticed this at an early age and encouraged me. Teachers also noticed and in sixth grade it was arranged that I learn the basics of oil painting. Once I was in high school I attended every art class that was offered. In 1979 I received a B.A. degree from Rocky Mountain College and continued with post graduate studies at the University of Montana. In 1986 I moved to Santa fe, New Mexico. I was a member of Artists Equity, Rio Grande Artists Co-op and Santa fe Society of Artists. I participated in marketing my art in the outdoor venues. In 2005 I returned to live in Montana where I continue with my creative endeavors.
I work with acrylic paint for the most part. I also work in a variety of other mediums such as pen and ink, pastel, charcoal, pencil, and oil paint.
I like to spend a lot of time in Nature. I think my inspiration comes from that part of matter that is not solid.
I often paint landscapes but the subject is energy, both screen and imagined.
Charles Burchfield was an early hero of mine.
