Celebrating Our Lives in the Midwest


These porches from late 19th century and early 20 century homes are the perfect stage for capturing a chance, narrative moment in time.  The pattern of light and shadow,  the windows that reveal a glimpse of the interior or an intriguing reflection, and the objects on display help create the subtle drama of the nostalgic porch. 


As a student of Robert Sudlow at KU, I was thrilled with the freedom of plein air painting, and the endless possibilities the Kansas  landscape provides.  Now many years after finishing my graduate studies, the Kansas landscape has continued to be a challenging and rewarding theme.


Available in pencil, watercolor or oils.  Finished paintings are composed from photographs taken by the artist.   The challenge of capturing an individual's likeness on canvas or paper and creating a family keepsake is one of the artist's favorite subjects. Commissions by request.
