WILDLANDANCE embraces the creative and restorative vision of our natural landscape and all the company we keep. As a lifelong artist and poet, as well as a professional ecologist working in my Rocky Mountain homelands, my artwork, creative expression...
As an artist, I work hard to create paintings that speak both to me and to others about the preciousness of life. My process is simply to draw the human figure and face with beauty, emotion, and expression. I strive, with every finished work, to breath life into my subjects. I believe that art improves the quality of life and I hope my art encourages the viewer to reflect on our ephemeral existence.
Born in Los Angeles, California and a graduate of Fine Arts from California State University Fullerton, I have been a figure painter for most of my career. Currently I live in Taos, New Mexico where I have been working exclusively with oil paints on canvas and wood. I have studied with Kerry Dunn (Pennsylvania) and Zin Lim (Los Angeles).
