I was born and raised in western Colorado. I am, or have been; a son, a brother, a student, a farm hand, a soldier, a husband, a father, a grandfather, an architect, a gym owner, a fitness instructor, an artist, a dreamer, a philosopher, and an observer of life. I find myself with more interests than time, but always have some sort of creation at the core. I like a hard bike ride and a cold beer. I am a coffee freak and would to travel more, I want to live on an organic farm, and I like to sleep well and work hard. If you like my art and it will enhance your life or help create a good space for you, I would love to hear from you and help you purchase your favorites. I also do free mock-ups of my art in photos of your space; this is to help you fine-tune your decisions.
I love exploring how a shape or a series of shapes can organize and support each other, and give context and meaning. I think a lot of what we perceive in our world works this way. For example, the mountain and the valley are not individually definable without each other. The sky and the horizon must create a boundary for each other, for either to be perceived as a definable thing. I am often intrigued how the eye and brain might interpret things, how a circle might become part of a human form, or how one straight line might be part of a barn, a field, a flower, and the sky. I like exploring this concept and these themes run through much of my work. I also like bold shapes and vivid colors. For my digital work, I can do custom color schemes if you see a composition you like, but the colors don’t quite suit your situation; contact me to discuss.
