Major Awards

  Every so often my artwork wins an award of which I'm damn proud, and this page highlights these accomplishments.

Arts for the Parks Grand Prize, 2002

"Illumination", 20 x 30

 This is the big damn deal that kicked off my life as a full-time artist. Before I won this prize I was splitting my time between being an engineer for HP and being an artist. Winning the Grand Prize changed my life, and I am very proud of this particular award.



Award of Merit

2005 American Academy of Women Artists annual exhibition

El Presidio Gallery
Tucson, AZ

"Pure Gold", 36 x 27

I had just been invited to join the American Academy of Women Artists as a Signature Member before the AAWA annual exhibition took place.

I sent several pieces to the show in Tucson, and I was surprised and delighted when I got to the show to find "Award of Merit" next to this piece.

The awards jurying was done by R.S. Riddick, CAA, and George Strickland - two very notable artists, making the award very meaningful for me.


Award of Excellence;
Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum Purchase Award

2002 Society of Animal Artists annual exhibition

"Bare Naked Lady", 28 x 36

This has to be my winningest piece ever:

  • 2002 Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation featured artwork
  • The Artist's Magazine 2003 calendar
  • Juried into the annual SAA exhibition, and there it won 3 awards: an Award of Excellence, and Purchase Awards from 2 different museums. Wow.
