Each of my paintings is hand-crafted. The process I use is intentionally slow, thoughtful, and methodical—much like a meditation while painting. The result is artwork that is most often described as serene and calming.
The invented landscapes of my paintings and monoprints are reflections of my experiences and memories of the open spaces and prairie settings of my Midwestern roots.
With oil paint and various mediums I apply many thin layers, to achieve unique surfaces and atmospheric effects that capture nature’s ever-changing light, color and weather.
