I am inspired by movement, being outdoors, and beautiful things I and we see everyday that often get overlooked. My artwork features vivid natural scenery, often contrast with manmade features ranging from street lamps, busted cars, railroad ties, to power lines. Home is with my friends, family, and in the Mobile Art Studio, but my favorite places on earth are Alaska and Nevada which are often the subjects of my paintings.
It’s never been enough for me to enjoy something on my own. As soon as I find out something worth knowing or experiencing, I want to tell ten people about it. I feel that having a sense of connection with the world and each other makes our lives richer, and by extension, the world a better place. When I paint, I’m focusing my attention and yours on those seemingly commonplace moments that are exquisitely beautiful.
I paint my way into conveying my overflowing sense of the world, but even that’s not enough! I’m not sure where the time goes, but my weekly outdoors column in the Anchorage Daily News has been running since 2013, and I occasionally freelance for other publications including Alaska Magazine. I also write a blog on this site specifically about art, but – you know. Life, too. Got an hour to burn? In early 2022, I did a radio interview on Alaska Public Media’s Outdoor Explorer. It’s 55 full minutes of me gabbing and I can’t bear to listen, but it felt like/I have heard it was a good conversation! (Want even more?! Here’s the follow up episode, recorded days after I returned from picking up the Mobile Art Studio!).
