I’m inspired by memories, magical moments, beautiful places, our connection to the natural world, and to each other. I began my artistic exploration through photography, which I’m still enthusiastic about, and when I’m not painting on location, I use my photographs for painting reference in the studio. My curiosity has led me to follow my love for learning in many different directions in both my life and work experiences; from a carpenter’s assistant, a deckhand on a pilot boat, a wilderness guide, a fine art, documentary and wedding photographer, a cook for a crew of Amish carpenters on a remote island, to traveling for one year around the Pacific Rim. I think I’ve always been more interested in the journey, who I connect with and what I discover along the way, than in arriving at any specific destination. I enjoy the process of exploring my experiences and observations in paint, and hope that what I’m moved and inspired by comes through in my paintings.
