"With my art, I capture the spectacular interplay of color, light, and image, and then distill it down while still maintaining the original awe. I like to present the viewer with a different way of seeing images while evoking a sense of enjoyment and creating a smile. My 'joie de vivre' is exploring color and disappearing for hours to create whimsical and colorful expressive paintings. I paint the Colorado mountains and aspen trees which surround me and provide a quiet escape. Other subject matter includes a series of pups with expressive personalities, lively bicycles, and an abstract series using my characteristic bold hues, shapes, and texture. I use oil pastels which were originally developed for Pablo Picasso, as they are an ideal medium with which to render my impressions while outside or traveling the world."
