"My work explores my relationship with wild places. I paint recognizable landscapes in vibrant colors, focusing on undulating clouds, swirling color, and dazzling light. Painting alpenglow-bathed powder is as meaningful as much as skiing those same pristine slopes, but in a different, quiet way. I've found a happy balance between the dynamic experience of outdoor recreation and painting the feelings of that place back in my studio. I imbue my paintings with a sense of excitement and awe and that encompass how we feel in the mountains- infinite, inspired, and fulfilled."
