I am a real estate agent and house flipper by day and an artist by nature. I paint with acrylic and oil paints. Themes in my artwork vary from challenging educational studies to deeply emotional renderings of loved ones as well as total abstractions. Each painting is thoughtfully composed no matter the subject. I attempt to engage the viewer with specific mood, time and the subtle effects of the painting medium. Currently I am the CEO of the Olathe Visual Artists and First Art Gallery of Olathe. I teach painting classes at the First Art Gallery of Olathe every Saturday morning. I have won the following honors Brush Creek Art Walk 2014 – Honorable Mention, “Nelson From the South Lawn” Plein Air oil on canvas, Stems Plein Air Event 2014 – 4th Place “Silent City” Plein Air oil on canvas nocturn, Olathe Art Fair 2013 – 3rd place “Kill Creek Trail” Plein Air oil on canvas
