Nature is my muse and mentor. I feel most at peace when nestled in the arms of Mother Earth. Whether it be wandering through a high desert sunrise, sleeping under Orion’s Belt, learning from the wisdom of the river, or taking a scolding from a scrub jay, here is where I feel most authentically myself.

Capturing the essence of our diminishing wild places in my paintings is my passion. I’d like to open the viewer’s eyes and heart to the simple pleasures that are everywhere around us. If I can communicate this peaceful feeling and instill a reverence for our magnificent Planet through my art, then I feel I have been of  some small service.
