Artist Statement/Bio: I am a Rangeland student and a visual artist living in San Angelo, Texas. I began my formal art education in high school, where I attended a private school with a 4-year art program on an artist scholarship.
I specialize in oil paintings, but also enjoy pencil drawings and photography. Recently, I have been further discovering and honing my own painting style. I am influenced largely by post-impressionist and American realist frontier movements.
I most enjoy paintings which depict the natural world in the Western US. Though I grew up outside Baltimore, Maryland I was fascinated with the Western US and the outdoors from a young age. I have experienced working and living on ranches in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Texas. I hope my artwork can help share my experiences of this life with others.
