I’m an American artist living in Seattle Washington. I studied commercial art in Seattle in the early 90s. Although I had an introduction to painting at this time, I’m mostly self-taught. This addictive process of endless experimentation has led me down all sorts of rabbit holes and the joy of discovery is my motivation to continue on this path. The creative process is my passion and my way to connect to spirit, and sharing the secrets I find with others further feeds this passion.
Undoubtedly growing up in the PNW has had the deepest influence on my work. My subject matter comes almost entirely from nature and there is a noticeable lack of man-made elements in my work. I’m searching for a way to communicate the emotional experience of being in the woods and finding so much life and death slowly dancing together. The circle of life is present in nearly all my work in one way or another.
