I grew up in Alaska. Surrounded by the elements you are aware of how perilous and fragile the human existence is in the wilderness. We have a deep connection to the physical world and I'm interested in depicting that from a dreamlike, removed vantage point. My paintings are about implied topography and symbolic signage. They are about places i've seen and felt, and about places i've imagined. The motifs are grounded in, and contain the elements of land, water and sky.
I currently reside in California and have a studio in Mission district of San Francisco. The light and the landscape here in the bay area is inspiring.
