Explore. Connect. Communicate.
I strive to foster connections between people and place by imbuing my paintings with observations of nature and my emotional response to it. My art begins with miles of hiking on a trail, taking time to deeply perceive the sights, sounds, smells, and feeling of a place. When I choose a landscape to paint, it becomes a snapshot of the environmental conditions around me and my personal experience of it.
At the intersection of firsthand experience and memory, I hope to inspire curiosity, wonder, and a recognition of the inherent value of our wild spaces.
