I hope to show an appreciation of art by imaginative, creative and artistic content in my paintings. I feel that nature and the Ozarks area give me the inspiration to paint watercolors. I have shown art work at the Ozark Empire Fair, Missouri State Fair, Mama Jeans, Nearly Famous Deli, and other local venues, and numerous art shows around Missouri and Kansas.
Art provides the opportunity to capture and share the spirit and personality of a subject, whether animate or not. I like to isolate what seams common and recreate it in a different light, all the while, creating a source of emotion and cause for reflection from the viewer. In my travels and at home, the flavors of people that I encounter definitely inspire my work. I am also lucky to have the beauty of the Ozarks as subject matter any time I wish!
