p gal noir (2)Growing up on the plains in Southwest Kansas, I learned to look for beauty in unexpected places.  This habit has led me down roads less traveled around the world and in my approach to painting.   I am particularly drawn to painting lush foliage, water and reflections (none of which we had on the farm!) from a non traditional view point.  There is something so compelling in the shapes and colors provided by nature.  In isolating these items from their surroundings I hope to entice the viewer to slow down, take a second look and enjoy what they might otherwise have missed.

After 6 great years of painting in my studio at the Boardinghouse Studios, I have moved downtown to a studio with more space.  In my new studio (in the Neusteters building at 16th and Stout) I am currently exploring painting water on a much larger multi-panel scale.  If you would like to stop by and see my new work, please just drop me a note.
