The series “The Spirit of Prairie Life” celebrates the abundance of life on the prairie. It focuses on the connection our animals have with each other and with the land. Emotional connection is the focus of my artwork because I believe personal relationships and connections to the life around us make life fulfilling.

I hope viewers of this exhibit feel a nostalgic connection to the prairie and the animals we share it with, as they are surrounded by the calming influence of resting and grazing animals and the movement of native birds.

The exhibition consists of 29 paintings of the Midwestern prairie lands. All of these paintings have strong brush and pallet knife marks, expressing a love of the materials and process as well as of the subject matter.
