Having been born and raised on a farm, I gained a deep love for the amazing beauty of nature. Through my mother, I gained my love for art. She was a cultured woman who raised her family in a hard-working, dusty farming environment. She taught us to love the world and find joy and beauty in the simple things. We lived the way of farmers and ranchers......with a love and a respect for the land. Included in my life was the faith and love of God nurtured by my devoted parents. A gift of my heritage. My art reflects the peace and beauty of nature and my love of God.
My feelings can be summed up in the words of the Utah artist, LeConte Stewart; "There is nothing finer or greater than to paint the things that God created. Many times I come home bowed down with reverence, grateful that I am an artist." ditto Mr. Stewart!
