I have been drawing and painting since I was a small child. I focused on portraits in pastel and charcoal in my early years. My primary concentration in recent years has been on ocean and mountain oil paintings. In addition to my undergraduate and graduate studies, I also studied art and philosophy in Florence, Italy with a focus on the art and art history of Europe.
I continue to focus on mountain and ocean settings for oil and acrylic paintings. My artistic style ranges from experiential realism to abstract landscapes. I regularly paint scenes from Boulder County. I am an avid snowboarder, hiker and surfer and travel extensively. My outdoor sports interests and travels provide me with a wide range of settings for my work. My art captures the interplay between the sky and the weather and its effect on land and sea.
My goal is to show the incredible diversity and beauty of nature, and to paint pictures that hopefully resonate with people who have been to those places or want to go.
