I am a Boulder, Colorado native and have been a graphic and fine artist in the Boulder and Denver area since the early 80’s. My signature “Gratitude Poppy” series was inspired from inspirational sketches made while traveling through France in the spring 2000. My personal sketch books have been my intimate source of inspiration throughout the years.

I studied fine art with Sherry Heart on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. I came away with a fun, heartfelt balance of color theory and composition. At that time I primarily worked with pencil drawings and oils. Following this period, I graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art in the field of Graphic Design. Since graduating I have worked as a graphic and fine artist.

Today I create and share images of bright, bold, joy from my Congress Park studio in Denver.
