In March of last year, I won Best of Show at the 17th annual CowgirlUp! 2022 at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona. Art of the West (November/December 2022) magazine showcased my painting “Summer Bliss” on the cover and a great article six page inside! July 2019 issue of Southwest Art magazine also contains a four page article on my art.


My paintings depict the west I know: Cloudless skies. Intense sun. Extraordinary heat. The home of cowboys, horses and cows. I am drawn to the details of today’s working cowboy and the livestock they manage. I travel to local ranches and small rodeos for inspiration. Bold graphic colors speak to me in depicting the modern cowboys and their everyday lives.
