  • Medium : Oil & Watercolor


Artist Statement

I have been painting for over 30 years, almost exclusively in watercolor until the last couple of years. I have finally made the shift to oils and I love it! I paint mostly in a traditional, realistic style, though the oils lend themselves to a more “painterly” look, allowing me to focus more on brushstrokes and texture.

I love the history of the American West, but also paint contemporary scenes as well as landscapes. Whether it’s cowboys, Native American, military, mountain men…whatever, there are probably going to be horses involved somewhere!
