Do you like art that celebrates animals, and that has a contemporary flair?
If you do, then please come in and explore. I'm a Montana-based artist with an abiding love of the modern American west -- its wildlife, horses, cowboys, and cowgirls. I work primarily in oils and scratchboard; my mission is to share my wonder at the beauty and sentience of the animal nations with which we share this planet, and to connect you to Nature with my work.
I emphasize consultative commissions and working with you to find the right art for your collection. My art is based on a lifetime of fieldwork and experience, and part of every sale is donated to conservation causes.
If you like what you see here, please sign up for my once-a-month email newsletter, the Artzine, which features news, new images, and occasionally a bit of philosophical musing - sometimes even questions for you, my reader.
And a note on caring for scratchboards: I spray each finished piece with multiple coats of fixative and present the boards unglazed, in either silver-accented black frames or in floater frames. The only care your scratchboard artwork needs is to dust the surface, gently, on occasion; you can do that with a soft, clean microfiber cloth, either dry or slightly damp. You may feel the cloth 'drag' slightly over the fixative coats on the face of the piece, but that is not an issue.
