A family road trip west in a yellow Shasta as a ten year old boy changed the trajectory of my life. Traveling so far from home and experiencing the great national parks of the west opened my eyes to a world of possibilities. The west has been my home now for over forty years, and I cannot imagine living anywhere else.
As a visual artist I especially love living and working in New Mexico. It has such a wonderful aesthetic combination of land, sky, light, and palate. This expansive backdrop, combined with the simplicity of the architecture, affords me a perfect foundation for my work.
New Mexico is filled with rich, diverse, soulful subject matter. I am constantly inspired by its people, cultures, traditions, spirituality, and history.
