The Great Plains have been my home for most of my life. I can look out my back door and see the wide-reaching horizon. There's something about the place where the earth meets the sky that pulls me in and captivates me. What others may find ordinary, and may not even notice,
comes alive when I see it...and I must paint it.
I use acrylics in gestural brush strokes to express the lyrical lines flowing through the ground, around the trees, and across the horizon. Color is a passion of mine, and that drives me to use it in unique ways. I seek to crown the world around me in vibrant color. I started wrapping the painting around the edge of the canvas to mirror the way there's always more just beyond what we can see. All of this has established my signature style that creates contemporary, frameless art.
My paintings illustrate how everything knits together. It's my desire that you experience a warm positivity and empowerment to be creative yourself. How are the trees and horizons you pass everyday moving in this world with life and vibrancy?
