It is from the outdoors that I derive much of my inspiration, being particularly drawn to conveying the experience and magic found deep in the mountains and desert. However, whether you are miles back in the wilderness or simply walking to your car early in the morning, there is astounding beauty and color everywhere if you slow down to observe it. It is easy to rush through life and miss these quiet everyday moments. Though I may focus on the experiences found far in nature, in my daily creative practice I try to bring out the simple beauty of day to day life. It is my hope that through interacting with my art, viewers may be inspired to slow down and have the world they experience everyday re-enchanted - whether it’s the hundred year old trees they pass on their daily commute or the view of the Tetons.
