My artwork embraces the outdoors in a physical way, undeterred by rain, sleet, or snow. I would rather be outdoors hauling my painting gear to the edge of an overlook, the top of the mountain, and the rocky bed of a stream. As a former ski bum and a competitor in marathons and sprint tri’s, I have realized the incredible artistic opportunities in painting dramatic landscapes and the people who seek to explore them.
