Addition, subtraction, construction, and destruction are an inexorable part of life. I channel these forces into my creative process.
The paintings in this series were made using locally sourced materials including: iron-rich Utah soil, salt from The Great Salt Lake, copper powder, plaster, recycled paint, and local newspapers.
Happy day! My commissioned painting (6 feet x 8 feet) for Mountain America Credit Union is finally finished!
At the moment, it is on route to Alpine Art & Frame where it will receive a gorgeous, dark walnut frame. From there, it will travel to Mountain America corporate headquarters in Sandy, Utah where it will be installed on the main floor. Stay tuned for the installation photos! A huge thank you to Alpine Art & Frame, Method Studios and Mountain America Credit Union.
Happy day! I am honoured to have been selected to participate in the Summer Group Show at 15th Street Gallery. Many thanks to the family & friends who attended the event.

My new series of paintings is inspired by rust, peeling paint, abandoned buildings, ripped jeans, torn newspaper, and many surfaces found in nature. I am fascinated by creating paintings that look like they have been left outside to be exposed to the elements and the passing of time.
We all have an internal compass. Following that compass isn't always easy, but it will always take us exactly where we need to be. My unique contribution is creating paintings I am passionate about, and teaching others how art making can be a vehicle for empowerment. Shop the Collection
