"Creating the map of my life through painting and design"
I make my home in Missoula, MT where I paint in my downtown studio. I have a passion for the wild spaces of the west, as I document my experiences of nature in evocative abstract landscapes. I love to work with color and light in representing the moods and places I have seen in the wilderness. I have backpacked extensively in Montana, Canada, Wyoming, and Alaska, and draw on these locations to create my oils. My work is as much about memory as it is about the place. I look upon my paintings as a map of my life, which I am constantly creating.

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I almost never work from photographs. My work is really from memory and improvisation, unless it is a bird, animal, or commission."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I wish to create safe and peaceful places, the ultimate escape and a window which can create a new territory or sight unseen before. Many people are reminded of places through my art or tell me that it heals them in some way, if I can help people feel tranquil and less anxious, I am doing something right."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I recently got to ship a larger painting to Tokyo. I hand built a solid crate and sent it across the ocean. It took some doing to get it secure, but I put a lot of time and love into it, as I do with all of my shipping projects, it's just funny how involved and serious the different scenarios get sometimes!"
