"Although I spent many years in sales, art has always been my passion – art with details that I feel are only possible with a pencil – details that create work that sometimes looks photographic. These details help me capture the feelings and emotions of the subjects, whether the subject is human or animal.
My work leans heavily to western subjects either present day or historical because even though I will never have the opportunity to be one, “My heroes have always been OLD cowboys.”
I have participated in the Phippen Western Art Show in Prescott, AZ since 2002 and have received 5 awards (first through third place) in the drawing category.
I have also been juried into several American Plains Artists, Mountain Oyster Club and Bosque Art Classic shows.
I have participated in the Arizona Fine Art Expo since 2012.
My Coyote Crossing Studio has been on the Sonoran Art’s League’s Hidden in the Hills Artist Studio Tour and Sale for 20 years.
Additionally I have participated in other art shows in the Phoenix Metro area.
Before moving to Arizona in 1996, I lived in St. Louis for 26 years. I entered many juried competitions and won numerous awards for my paintings (my medium at the time).
I am a member of the Sonoran Arts League, the American Plains Artists and Friends of Western Art. My artwork has been purchased for corporate and private collections worldwide.
