Hey Everyone,

Thanks for dropping by to give a look at my work. A little about me. I graduated from Culver-Stockton College.Then did a fair amount of post-grad work at Western Illinois University, as well as Truman State University, where I studied with Dr. William Unger who was a student of Kokoshka.

Dr. Unger’s use of color had a big influence on my painting style. I tend to see the subtle colors in an object and enjoy pushing those to make a stronger statement in my paintings and drawings.

My works reside in both public and private collections throughout the midwestern U.S.

Have a good day!
