Residing in Northern Utah’s Cache Valley, I find a great deal of inspiration in the regions land, towns, and people which make it unique. There is a beauty within the everyday and ordinary that only painting can reveal. I’m drawn to these subjects in hopes of making and sharing such discoveries.
Working in watercolor and oil, I strive to capture a personal, and unique, portrayal of the Contemporary American West. An important motive to paint lies in understanding my surroundings. I’m visually compelled by various forms of shape, value, pattern, etc. Through the process of painting, I gain new and deeper insight into my subject and its surroundings as these elements combine and communicate.
