About the artist
My dual passions for oil painting and wild places drive my work. I love the texture of oil paints, the process of pushing the paint around on the canvas and mixing colors to create light and depth. I find my subjects during hikes where I sketch with ink and watercolors to record my experience, and bring them into the studio to create my canvases. My goal is to encapsulate the elusive beauty of a particular place to create a memento that has its own essence and energy.
