My paintings have often been described by others as poetic, lyrical, luminous, and serene.  Primarily a landscape painter, I am moved by the evening light hitting a stand of prairie grasses, the movement of water, the shadows crossing a winding road, the mysteries of light and atmosphere.  The early part of my career was spent working as an architectural illustrator, a practice that requires an understanding of perspective, cast shadows, reflections, and a constant study of how color behaves under varying light conditions. It was, as it turned out, a fantastic training ground for a realist painter. I work both in watercolor and oil, both en plein air and in the studio. Painting the landscape en plein air (outdoors, from life) affords me a keener awareness of the unique qualities of light that give one a sense of place. I take the studies, the memories, and the sensory experiences of that practice back into the studio to draw on for my larger works.
