My work is considered mostly traditional in style, and yet, is quite varied in subject matter. Still life, landscapes, animals and figurative work, including portrait, are all subjects that I enjoy painting and have painted for years. It all comes together in my current concentration on the American West. I am inspired by the people, animals and landscape and living here, Arizona has a great deal to do with that. The quality of light, the vastness and uniqueness of the landscape the exquisite beauty of the human form, are all contributing factors to this inspiration. I seek interesting light qualities, on my subject matter, which come from a direct observation of nature and a reverence for its truth and beauty.
