I'm a Nebraska based artist who's original art has graced the walls of corporate, government and private collectors alike. Working in a realistic style, I have translated both my own visions and that of my clients into works that inspire conversation, instill pride, encourage inner thought, ignite the imagination and sometimes simply create a serenity of place.
Traditional Realism is the style of painting that I am most passionate about and within which I work. I have studied and researched the methods of oil painting which the old masters used. The use of successive layers of paint, each with more oil content, gives a painting depth that I think is unsurpassed in any 2D medium. I've incorporated these techniques within my work. In addition, to make my work more durable for exhibition and purchase, I again use a tried and true method of painting on primed, wood panels. Finally, I finish my work with a protective layer of retouch varnish, which brings the pigments back to their original brilliant color.
My inspiration for my art comes from many places: my own journey through life; the awe-inspiring beauty of nature; my personal spirituality; suggestions from family and friends; and even my sense of humor. Some artists that have had an influence on my style and genre, and those that I admire most, are: Norman Rockwell, Alphonse Mucha, Adolphe Bouguereau, to name a few. You can see the influences of these “all star” artists in much of my work.
