I consider myself a modernist in terms of emphasizing personal style and craftsmanship, and a contemporary American artist regarding commitment to message and layers of meaning.
A resident of Wyoming since 1989, I make paintings, printmaking, collaborations and book art that look outward from my home in the West. Rather than rely on familiar Western tropes, I use my surroundings to articulate a personal sensibility about this time and place.
I currently serve on the National Advisory Board of the University of Wyoming Art Museum, write for Studio Wyoming Review, and am a founder of Pipeline Art Project, a group of contemporary Wyoming artists "pumping art from the energy state of Wyoming." I am a proud member of the Leadership Wyoming Class of 2019.
