I love capturing emotions and the human spirit in my art. I live in an amazing place where I can hike, kayak, and snowboard in the Mt. Hood area and Columbia River Gorge. My love for people and the landscape is what feeds my art. I could not have one without the other. I continue to work to improve my skills by focusing on good design, composition, and story. My inner focus is to follow my heart and paint things that inspire me. I believe all these things will help me to be the best painter I can be.
