Early in life I discovered an affinity for creating art in a variety of forms. I began with simple drawings of my favorite animals. Expanding into sculpted art for many years, horses, wildlife and birds became my focus. I am primarily a self-taught artist, however, I was influenced by many exceptional artist as I was growing up.
My mother was an accomplished artist working in porcelain and ceramics most of her life. She was well known for her reproduction porcelain dolls and bird sculptures. We spent many hours together working on birds, flowers and wildlife sculptures. Upon her passing, I sold my kiln and embarked on a new path into Fine Art Watercolors.
I invested time with a master Western Art Watercolorist in Texas. He influenced my style and gave me the basics of watercolor principles. My watercolor subjects are influenced by western and ranching culture and often feature ranching themes. This is the lifestyle I grew up with and continue living today.
I hope you will see in my paintings, glimpses of my everyday life that includes the animals I love and the people I meet along the way.
