There is magic in the prairies and the plains. The blue skies and colorful sunsets, native grasses, and wildflowers of all kinds, inspire my work.
When I paint I use soft pastels made with pure pigments that pulsate on the paper or board. Layers of pastel are applied with my fingers and hands until I have the desired depth of color. It's about freezing that fleeting moment and how it makes you feel.
I hope to share my love of nature and the beauty of the everyday through my work.
