Artist Statement

I seek to achieve a greater understanding of the landscape that surrounds me. As an avid hiker, I desire to convey our earth from vantage points that many would otherwise overlook. Rather than simply portraying a landscape, I strive to paint the experience of being outdoors. Referencing work that I have created outside allows me to produce paintings in the studio that have a lighter, more atmospheric feel to them. It is with this painting process that I hope to share my outdoors experience with others.
