My favorite shoes are hiking boots. For years I explored the wildernesses of the Southwest, hiking, backpacking, hang gliding and mountain biking - interacting with our wild places up close and in person. This has profoundly influenced my work. I believe we are incomplete without a connection to, and appreciation of, the natural world, and that we should cherish and protect it. To honor that end, I create impressionist/realism paintings of Southwest landscapes and wildlife in oils, so that my collectors can share in that spiritual relationship. I want to promote deeper respect and connection with our vanishing wild places and the creatures that call them home.
