Wyoming is my home. I am grateful to have lived here most of my life. Before I joined the Marine Corps in 2001, I loved Wyoming. Returning home after my commitment to the Marines, I appreciated it even more. Sure, I like to visit all sorts of other places in the world, but Wyoming is the land that I love.
I have always enjoyed drawing and painting. My career in art began when I graduated high school and went into the Marine Corps as a Combat Illustrator. After 4 years of service in the Corps, I went to college at Black Hills State University in Spearfish SD for Bachelors of Science in Art and Communication Art with a minor in Photography.
I have been painting full-time since graduation from college in 2009. I enjoy the outdoors, hunting and fishing. This is where I experience most of the things I paint. I try my best to accurately reflect the beauty that God created around me. My best work, I believe, is when I can do just that: reflect the work of God’s hand.
It’s my goal to make my list of accomplishments grow steadily over the next few years. I am a member of the Society of Animal Artists. I was blessed to be chosen to have my art on the 2012 National Wild Turkey Stamp and received 3rd at Wyoming’s Conservation stamp competition. I also strive to be a part of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Art program, Birds in Art, The Wyoming Conservation Stamp, The Federal Duck Stamp and many others…. Those goals are for tomorrow, I don’t know what will happen tomorrow, I do know that I am blessed today. Lord willing, I will be able to continue to paint in the years to come. Stay tuned…..
