My paintings are straightforward. The common man is a major element in my work. I try to convey both the strength and gentleness of people who live close to the earth, their love of family, community, their faith in their God and the mysteries of life.
Farm animals are another major element in my art. Horses, Cattle, Goats, Chicken......... Applying drips and drops and layer upon layer of color I express my belief in their majesty and importance to the land and the people that work the land all around this world.
My inspiration comes from many cultures, each very distinctive yet all so connected in the ways they live their day-to-day lives. My paintings relay the beauty of the simple though very hard lives people live while presenting themselves with great honesty and dignity.
