Biography

I am a nationally recognized artist specializing in conceptual renderings and landscape paintings. In 1993 Amtrak featured my painting of the new Olympia, Washington, station on its corporate calendar, an achievement that led to my rail art being recognized nationally.

I continue to produce commissioned works for Amtrak, including the commemorative centennial paintings of Washington D.C. Union Station (2008) and Glacier National Park (2010). My most recent work is a collection of vignettes celebrating Amtrak’s 40th anniversary in 2011.

My work has been published in various papers and journals, such as the Arizona Republic, Denver Post, and USA Today, National Parks Magazine, Audubon and books such as Alfred Runte’s Allies of the Earth: Railroads and the Soul of Preservation and Trains of Discovery: Railroads and the Legacy of Our National Parks.
