Artist Statement -

It is interesting how the term Western Art is defined. For many it means cowboys and horses. While others think of the romantic exagerations by Remington. Still others will seriously consider Western Art, only if it represents the Southwest region.
Well having been born in the American West.Living on a Farm/Ranch. Mining for coal and moly at one time. Living the city lifestyle as well, I see the the term Western Art as so much more.

The color of the West encompasses its land, people and their attitudes .
Whether from the past, future or present day, this color has its own unique quality.

This is why I don't like to confine my subject matter to only the pre concieved traditional notions or ideas of what American Western Art is. Its the experiences I'm after so I can put them in the art.

Artist Exhibitions

I am in the process of compiling my past and current exhibition opportunities.
