My work is infused with magical realism and surrealism; not styles I consciously pursued. My affinity for ancient art, mythology and the extraordinary has appeared as I work.
I love life’s exuberant drama; the constantly changing peak moments we all experience.
I attempt to catch the actual and imaged moment with as much sensory overload as I can compose.

Painting "Flagstaff Fire" was selected for the first art show presented by Boulder's Open Space Mountain Parks Department (OSMP). The work had to be either created on or about the OSMP. This painting expressed the terror facing Boulder in June 2012 as a fire burned just west of the city. The insignificance of human effort against nature's power made me think of the gold in Russian religious icons.
