About My Work
I am a Kansas Native and this is a major influence on my art. The mid-western landscape is extremely important in its fabrication. Nature as my subject opens many possibilities for the feeling elicited. I can bring to life the wakefulness of a morning sunrise or the soothing peaceful quiet of a colorful sunset. Regionalist art has also played a big factor into my style of painting. I paint directly from places I have been and where I live. Creating a storybook of my life. I feel a deep connection to the subject when it is a familiar place. Like the road I drive to work or the lake where my family goes fishing. My method starts with capturing an image via a photograph then transposing this imagery onto my canvas. With acrylics I paint moving from back to front. I stop when my painting creates the same feelings I had the moment I originally captured the image.
I designed this website because I wanted to share my passion and completed works in an online pathway. All of my paintings are for sale.
