"My passion and focus for painting is landscapes. I only paint where I’ve been and what I’ve seen. Consequently, each painting has a unique story. Or perhaps better stated, each painting is a unique story that represents a passing moment in time. And to capture the essence of that story is the ultimate challenge. I constantly seek unique natural environments--often quite difficult to get to--that are, in and of themselves, perfect illustrations of our innate need to protect wild spaces. "
