MY STORY

I am an artist living in the desert southwest and have always been drawn to the beauty in the landscapes, skies and architecture of this area.  I love to spend my time expressing this in my artwork.  I started painting in oil to capture the gorgeous colors.  Later I added working with metals to better express the desert animals and culture of the native peoples.  Copper and silver mirror the richness and warmth of the desert. Over time I have added working with turquoise and other rich colored stones.

I have displayed my work in several local galleries, public buildings and at the local country club.  I am member of Artists of Picacho Hills and participate in the group's annual shows.  I am also a member of Art Form and show my work at some of those events also.  My painting mentor is Joe Ireland.  I have studied under him for over ten years.  I hope you enjoy my work.
