I am primarily a landscape painter hoping to capture

and share the beauty I see wherever I travel or live.

I have had a lifelong interest in drawing and painting. From the 1960’s
watercolors were my preferred medium. I spent many weekends in the country
looking for the beauty that can be found in the Midwest. Business travel also
provided opportunities to see, sketch and photograph many wonderful places
in the world. I seldom am without a sketchbook.

While my interest in skiing brought me to Taos, New Mexico, I realized that
when my “day job” career ended, Taos would be a very interesting place to
live and pursue artistic interests. While primarily a watercolorist, since 2011 oil
painting has become my passion. It’s one more life-long learning experience.
Being largely “self-taught”, I prefer painting “plein air” or from my own black
and white sketches.

I have worked with professional artists James Godwin
Scott, Ray Vinella, Fran Larsen, Katherine Liu, Skip Lawrence, Christopher
Schenk, Pat Woodall, Richard A. Nichols, Lori Putnam and Kevin
Macpherson. I also appreciate and enjoy the help and coaching from local
artist friends; Walt Gonske, Clarence Medina, Allen Polt and Julian Robles.

A member of Plein Air Painters of New Mexico, Taos Plein Air Painters, and
Taos Artist Organization my paintings have appeared in various exhibitions
and studio tours of the Taos National Society of Watercolorists, Taos Fall Arts
Festival, Taos Artist Organization, Taos Plein Air Painters, Millicent Rogers
Museum Miniature Show and other individual venues. My paintings are in
collections in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Texas,
Washington, Wisconsin, Mexico and Spain.

My wife, Carol, and I have collected original art work for the past 35+ years.
Having beautiful paintings on our walls every day provides examples of what
others have seen in the Southwest, and stimulates painting as much as our
extraordinary landscape does.
