"Modern Folk may be the best term I've overheard someone say when describing my work. Neo-Regionalist is another good one. My work is still very representational but is constantly moving more toward simplicity. My influences are many - painting, music, architecture, literature, nature - all have had a profound effect on my art. Everett Spruce, Marsden Hartley, Otis Dozier, Stuart Davis, William Lester are just a few of the artists who have made an impact on my style. - And, thirty years as a designer has also played a big role in how I see the world and project it on the canvas. - I love most everything about Texas, and my work shows it, by primarily focusing on the people, places and things of the Lone Star State.
