My obsession with horses began at birth and I've been drawing them ever since I learned to hold a pencil. While my full time career was with KCTV5 as a television news editor, I began studying art in 1989 with Robert Vaughn and Philomene Bennett, learning different ways to create my horses in many different styles and mediums.
Horses evolved from wild and free spirited ancestors and I find it difficult to capture all that energy in one style of painting. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of traditional styles and mediums to create my work. I paint for the joy of expression and when other appreciate my work I know I've been successful. I do occasionally stray from my subject matter to paint other animals or landscapes, and I have recently added work in clay to my portfolio, but my first love is always the horse. If all my different styles must have a label I would call it Equine-ist. My goal is to portray both the uniqueness of each horse, as well as the universal equine spirit. It must be in my DNA because capturing the essence of these kindred spirits is my passion
