Painting is my passion and the Western lifestyle fuels that passion. I love the country life, the people, and the animals. Having spent most of my childhood summers and vacations on my great-grandmother’s ranch, those memories and experiences greatly influence my choice of subject matter. Cattle are my favorite subject to paint and my heart will always be in the spirit of the west. It is my desire that my art will take the viewer to their happy place, their comfortable place, and that they will want to stay there for a while…a long while.
