Artist Statement

The inspiration for my paintings comes from my love for the outdoors. A camera and sketch book accompany me on my many hikes and camping trips in Colorado and upstate New York to capture those special scenes. Back in the studio, the photos and my sketches  help me create landscapes that I hope show the beauty I see in the world around us.
