BFA in Illustration from Colorado State University in 1982.
My work has been categorized as Contemporary Western. Traditional and well honored western subject matter with a different perspective, expressive interpretation. Drawing and draftsmanship is the skeleton of all my work. Without an understanding of draftsmanship and proportions the piece will fall apart. The drawing will establish the substance and balance. Then the color, shapes and lines take the subject beyond the usual. Negative space is as important to the balance of the piece as the positive space. Lastly providing detail, while at the same time keeping brush strokes to a minimum.
