The Earth is alive with the creative expression of the life forces of the universe. My calling as an artist has been to translate this expression into my work.
My paintings incorporate real life places that I have felt a connection to, and most are referenced from my own travels and time spent being in these landscapes. Many of these places I feel profoundly connected to and are deeply interwoven into the story of who I am and how I came to be a landscape artist. Mt. Shasta and the surrounding beauty of rural Northern California where I grew up are such places. As a young child, I felt the power of this connection to nature and I work to tap into this resource of intuition while I create.
