On my east Texas ranch, I divide my time between my cattle and my oil painting. Having painted since childhood, my styles and subject matter have varied greatly. Currently, I prefer still life and figure painting, combining tight realism with more expressive techniques. Always on the lookout for my next composition, I enjoying seeing the world through an artistic eye, and I've learned to appreciate the details and beauty that exist all around me. Painting is essential to who I am, and it brings me so much joy and fulfillment.

The many paintings I have sold and given away throughout the years are in private collections throughout the southwest. Much of my work has been custom for the client. Historic scenes, dogs, horses or just a favorite photograph have provided the challenges and inspiration for many paintings. Currently I paint more subjects of my choice , the vegetables in my garden, scenes from my travels and the people in my life.

I learned the basics from Maxine Campbell as a third grader. I started selling work at sidewalk shows as a teenager with Jimmy Lindley as my instructor. Studied with Debora Shubert-Lytle, a wonderful portrait artist as an adult. Throughout my life I have learned from workshops, videos and books. Currently Daniel Edmondsonís online courses are helping me to expand my knowledge and try new techniques. I strongly believe continuing to learn new things is a key to a fulfilling life
