Rolley Creek (16x20 inch); This painting Won 2nd Place in the Garibaldi Art Club Fall Show 2023.
The focus of my art is the exploration and preservation of local natural history and Biophilia. Over the last three years I have been venturing up to 2-hours distance from where I live, seeking out inspiration for my art. I have explored outlying regional parks for their lakes, streams, forests, valleys and mountains. Within 2-hours I can be in an alpine meadow among the wildflowers and clouds with a vast array of snow capped mountains that disappear into the haze of the far away horizon, or walking along a secluded ocean beach shrouded in morning fog. The region I live is uniquely positioned close to many diverse ecosystems. The beauty of many of these natural remote settings are only a short distance away, waiting to be discovered and rendered into art.
