artist statement:
I draw inspiration from nature and my interaction with wildlife at home in Park City, Utah along with my summer travels in our Airstream throughout our national parks and the West with my daughter. My work embodies my connection with these places and things and expresses a lively exploration of each. I employ the use bright colors and expressive paint strokes to render iconic animals and landscapes.
