My images are inspired by a love of nature, people and architecture. I have been drawing and painting since I was about 16 years old, starting in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where I grew up inspired by the landscape of Northern New Mexico. I currently live in Boulder, Colorado, USA, and work out of the Eldorado Springs Art Center.
Much of my landscape work stems from my conviction that nature, and wilderness, are essential and vital components to human life. I was born in 1964, the year the United States congress created the Wilderness Act. Growing up in a place with natural beauty strengthened this thread in me. I also developed a fascination with architecture, after studying the history of art and architecture at the University of Colorado, where I received a B.F.A in 1987. Architecture tells so much of a story about humanity, and drawing interesting architecture combines the study of history with space, line and perspective.
Lastly, I am somewhat of a documentarian, and my drawings and paintings reflect that I love to keep track of where I have been on this journey we call life. I am lucky to be alive and find much beauty on this planet, and I hope that my work reflects that passion.
