My work stems from a love of the outdoors and everything that fills it. Mountains and wildlife are what seem to dominate my paintings from giant beasts like bison and elk to more humble critters such as the mountain goat and the raccoon. My work is inspired and guided by the natural world and my observation of it especially when it comes to the anatomy of animals and trees , however, the work ultimately comes from my imagination and own creativity. I want my work to inspire in people a deep reverence for nature and its wonders as well as instill a love for the simple and uncomplicated which is so easily snatched away from us in the modern world. If it was not created by us humans, I want to paint it.
