My drawings and paintings are inspired by the beauty of the prairie, the sky and the creatures that call it home. I like to think of the natural world around me as "God's Canvas", and I am challenged to attempt to capture an essessence what I observe on this "canvas" with others in my art. I am particularly drawn to capture the play of light and shadow on the local landscape, and focus on the small, but beautiful, elements in nature that are easily overlooked or taken for granted. I work in a variety of media, from watercolors to oils. am a member of local Wamego, KS based, artists association, The Columbian Artist Group, The Missouri Valley Impressionist Society, SAP (International Society of Acrylic Painters), and the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. Art has been in juried shows, and is in numerous private collections. Work is represented in the following Kansas Galleries: Topeka's SouthWind and Yeldarb Galleries, Wamego's Swogger Gallery, and Manhattan's Strecker-Nelson Gallery. Website:
