I paint Western Art because as the world becomes more centralized, it is easy to lose sight of how life looks in rural America. Growing up in what was once rural Hooper, Utah, it was hard to watch farmers and ranchers sell off property because their children were not interested in farming or raising cattle.
I believe that everyone should know where their food comes from, and how much work it takes to keep the world running. Showcasing small, family run operations is something that I take great pride in.
My process starts on local ranches and farms. I have made many connections with some of the best people in the country. After learning about their operation and taking many photos, I can use the references and the experience to create works that might spark curiosity of the grittiness of rural life. I don’t enjoy romanticizing how this life looks, often my work will contain ear tags and dirty horses. Real life is often more interesting than a polished front.
As an abstract painter, I combine my innate sense of design with bold color, surface texture, and abounding imagination. I like to create works of art that are energetic, free spirited, visionary abstracts of life. My paintings evolve into works that reflect my organic ability and arouse curiosity of the viewer.
