As suggested, I am a painter, and since moving to Alaska I’ve begun taking photographs!

I have been creating art nearly my entire life.  Early in my career as a budding artist, I explored different mediums and different approaches to creating art. Taking photographs is my current obsession. I’ve missed painting, but due to my current lifestyle and living situation, I have seemed to let painting take a back seat to photography.

A little about my painting : I came to settle on working in oils and painting directly from life, and it is this direct communion with whatever I am painting that I thrive on.  I almost always paint from life – the living breathing model, an actual arrangement of still life objects, and the complexity of a landscape with the excitement of ever changing light.  I find painting from life inspiring because there is a subtle connection, a subtle energy in all subjects, which I believe can only be felt through direct and immediate experience.
