My Story

I am an artist at heart.  I love the outdoors and the beauty that exists all around us.  I am a sketch hunter - wondering about the landscape and small towns stopping to record what strikes me.  The sketch may be a few quick notes of color or some scribbles on a pad of paper.  It could be a journal entry, photograph, fish caught, or mud on my boots.  If time allows I will set up the easel and paint "en plein air" directly from life.  Some of these studies get frames while others might inform a studio painting.  Whatever the end result the magic is in the experience.  As an artist I am on a journey towards creating art that speaks to others.   Using some combination of pigments and mark making I hope to represent our world in a way that creates a sense of place.  I am seeking truth in the landscape - truth in light, truth in form, truth in the grandeur of nature.
