STATEMENT:
It took a bad ankle sprain in 2010 that delayed my usual summer of skydiving on weekends, and slowed me down long enough to concentrate on art. I started with pencil, felt that "zone" an artist enters into and haven't looked back. Previously I experimented with art on occasion, taking various painting classes. This background, a previous job at an art gallery in Alaska and the incredible nature I experienced there opened my eyes and inspires me still. A good skydive is still wonderful, but the beauty of the sky and clouds to draw and paint is now half the fun!
