I was raised outside of a small town in Northeast Texas and I was inspired by the wide-open space that surrounded me. That connection to space is the catalyst for my work.

My paintings reflect an interest in the landscape and the inhabitants and mythologies that accompany it. They give me the opportunity to explore representational and abstract subjects.

I begin with a dark underpainting and define the form by applying layers using lighter tonal values, to achieve a representation of light defining form.

I live and work in Taos, NM.
