These oil paintings depict simple scenarios. The scenes are a vehicle to explore a process, from the creation of the paint to its application on a canvas. The subject mater of this work is taken largely from my personal domestic environment. The desert landscape, the stark backdrop to my life, influence my sense of harmony, my sense of calm. That harmony, that calm, is the world that I desire to create through the limitations of oil and pigment.

From Colorado, now in Taos, New Mexico. Primarily self taught in all things painting.
