Expansive landscapes, the infinite horizon and amazing big sky have informed who I am as a person and as an artist. I also embody a “don’t fence me in” ethic that allows me a sense of freedom, inspired by the Great American West. I have a deep connection to the wild places of the American West. Many of these places, for me, are epitomized in the grandeur that is Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. I also have a driving desire to keep wild places wild, while sharing the fragile beauty of secret places with others inclined to be as thrilled as I am, by untamed beauty.
