Growing up on a 500-acre ranch in Eastern Washington, my childhood revolved around animals. Cows, chickens, and horses were my first friends, and as I grew so did my respect and appreciation for the richness they bring to our lives.
I began exploring nature at a young age, too, with fishing and exploring my giant backyard being at the forefront of my adventures. Today I spend as much time as my life allows on outdoor activities and exploration, from hiking to mountain biking to snowboarding & van travel throughout the Western States. My love of nature is deeply rooted, and as steady and constant as the arrow on the compass I carry.
My goal as an artist is to bring the natural vibrancy, majesty, power, and beauty of the outdoors to the canvas. Being in nature is a visceral experience for me, and I paint by channeling this energy through my fingertips. Yes, you heard that right. I create fine art paintings using that beloved childhood art of finger painting.
My work has been exhibited throughout the Northwest, featured in several national and international publications, and showcased on PBS. While recognition has its reward, my biggest joy comes from seeing people’s reaction to a landscape painting of a place they love, or the wonder in their eyes as they experience a grizzly bear leaping off of a canvas.
