After many years spent painting portraits in Chicago, I now divide my time between ranch life in Utah and sunny California. My inspiration comes from the natural world, my gardens and my dreams. I love bold color, strong draftsmanship and paintings that tell stories. I like to think my entire life is a creative work of art, but painting is the most fun of all!
