I paint and draw what surrounds me—the art, history and science of the plains of Kansas.
I have spent my entire life connected to the flora and fauna of the plains, and have been completely immersed in rural, western and Kansas culture. Exploring the relationships between land, sky, plant, animal and/or human is what my work centers around.
