I grew up in Texas on a working ranch. Living on
the ranch, there was always an abundance of horses to ride. My
love of horses was very strong, and so was my love of sketching
them. The transition from sketching to oil painting was quite natural.
With oils being my medium of choice, I am able to give attention
to detail to create more realistic renderings. Since moving to
Montana it gives me the opportunity to enjoy what Montana has to
offer, whether it is a cowboy on horseback or mountains and wildlife.
“War Paint” won the Best of Show Award and “Wallenda” won
the People Choice Award at the Bigfork Art and Cultural Center
in Bigfork Montana. “Wallenda” was highlighted in
HORSE & RIDER (April ’03). “Durkkhal” an
Akhal-Teke Stallion was the first artwork to ever appear on the
cover of THE MONTANA HORSE TRADER.
I am also a member of the Equine Art Guild, and Wildlife Artist
