Artist Statement 

 My paintings are representations of scenes of the West... Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona.  However, during the last four years my work has focused on scenes in the Wallowa mountains, particularly the Eagle Cap Wilderness of northeast Oregon.


 Light is what inspires me. I love to study the way light shows itself in the natural world. The colors, shadows, reflections, atmosphere, and constant shifting are endlessly fascinating to me. I am also captivated by the allegorical quality of light. The feelings that all of these attributes of light can evoke are what I bring to my art.



Galleries in Oregon, Idaho and Washington have displayed my paintings, including the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. My paintings are collected nationally.




Paintings currently on display at a gallery may be purchased through that gallery and a link has been provided. Paintings that are not currently in galleries may also be purchased. To do so, use my Contact page and  arrangements will be made.
