Born in Arizona, I spent most of my adolescence on a ranch in Double Adobe near the US/Mexico boarder. My father’s job as a rancher and conservationist took my family from Virginia to California and places in between. The time I spent on the Navajo Reservation as a boy left a strong impression and is often a source of inspiration for my work. I remember drawing as long as I can remember. I'm predominantly an oil painter, but enjoy exploring charcoal, gouache, and other mediums.
