When I’m in the woods, at the beach, on the top of a mountain the only thing that makes sense to me is making art. I just want to enjoy nature and paint pictures. My subject matter is never limited, I find beauty in all things. Persistent in focusing on the big picture, I simplify what I see rather than lose myself in detail.
Castle Peak – The best part about being a landscape painter is going out into the wilderness. This drawing came from a collection of sketches and photos I took while on a snowshoe backpacking trip on the Uinta mountain range in Utah during a blizzard in the early Spring.
Thy’s Mountain – As a trained illustrator I’ve grown a custom to creating work under someone else’s vision or direction. This piece was commissioned with the desire to mimic the style of a “minisketch” series I’d been working on at the time, but without a limitation on size. I was pleasantly surprised with how much my style changed by quadrupling the size.
