. . . I came to Colorado in 1976 and fell in love with this place!
I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University in 1974. My painting style has changed a lot over the years from realism to photorealism and presently to hyperrealism .
I came to Colorado in 1976 and fell in love with this place! The people, the vibe and of course, the mountains! I was home. In 1990 I became the Resident Manager for the University of Denver’s High Altitude Laboratory at Echo Lake. I held this position for eight years and got to experience not only the incredible beauty but the harsh and unforgiving environment of life at high altitude. This became the basis of my emergence into landscape painting.
I presently live in Loveland, which is a wonderful artistic town 40 miles north of Denver. I have exhibited my works continually across Colorado and in 2018 that was about to change. I was fortunate to have three of my paintings accepted into “Luster”. Luster is a nationwide traveling exhibition featuring Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C. Luster opened in Daytona Beach, Florida, in March of 2018 and will continue its run at least till 2022.
Looking forward, I find myself exploring themes from landscapes to automobiles taking an occasional left turn to try something different. I can’t wait for my next painting. Onward!
