"If anyone spends a short amount of time in central Illinois they will quickly discover the origins for many of my paintings. The flatness of the land and the openness of the sky have a minimalist quality that I can’t resist capturing from time to time. However, the character of the faces, whether human or animal, that call this rural landscape home, are an unending inspiration to me. Every face is beautiful and worthy of a work of art."
