When I’m not spending time climbing or hiking I’m usually painting. Teaching classes and being at the studio means alot to me. I enjoy passing on the knowledge I’ve been given or discovered and seeing others progress through that.
For me, art is an extension of my love for nature. Nature is still the greatest artist of them all! The things she expresses so easily and beautifully take years for us to even learn to imitate. I like to think of my paintings as an extension of myself as well as a tribute to the natural world.
