My style grew out of commercial illustration mixed with a new-found joy of Russian impressionism. I have concentrated to develop the merging of the two styles to create the bold and vivid paintings for which I am known for. I find that plein air painting brings a great opportunity to develop an emotional connection with the viewer. The beautiful thing is that the painting is a very personal statement of who the artist is, once a painting is completed. As an example, the simple yet bold brush strokes may take a painter a lifetime of painting to find their unique voice that only they carry. "Our lives are are about passion. My work is an attempt to bring that passion into our daily lives and to share it with others. In each piece or collection, I'm attempting to emote passion from the gazer's stare and to bring him into the emotional journey that has crescendoed to that moment that is captured on canvas."
My work has been seen from VH-1 Save The Music, Rocky Mountain Honey Smoked Salmon, American Chopper (OCC Choppers) and even featured on PBS.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My inspiration comes from the beauty of nature that surrounds us and the joy of trying to capture it in paint.
My painting style grew out of Commercial Illustration ranging from Pen and Ink, Airbrush, Pastel, Charcoal Watercolor, Gouache, Acrylic and Oil paint.
Some of my highlights have been, VH-1 Save The Music Campaign, one of my paintings being on T.V.'s American Chopper, aka O.C.C., and I was also featured on PBS's Arts District for a painting project that I did where I created a Alla Prima Plein Air painting every day fro 5 1/2 years with a total of 2084 consecutive paintings and then opened a gallery to show/sell them all. There have been many other highlights, locally in Colorado my work was featured on Honey Smoked Salmon, seen in the famous Teller House and even turned into billboards for a radio station.
