“As a child raised in Pennsylvania, I grew up loving the landscape around me. Living on a farm gave me a daily connection to nature, and the outdoors became a big influence in my life. My father would bring stacks of old paper from work and I would cover the blank sides with scenes in crayon and paint, beginning my life as an artist.
“After earning my BFA, I worked as an illustrator and later relocated to Colorado where I continued to work first in pastel and later in oil exploring my own work. The atmosphere, the expansive skies, the brilliant sun-drenched winter mornings, and the far-reaching vistas of Colorado are an inspiration for my paintings.
“I currently show my work at the Glass Tipi Gallery in Ward, Colorado.”
