A Biographical Sketch
Photography, painting and drawing all share an immediacy of experience: capable of expressing the present moment as well as the mysterious, elusive nature of fragments at the edges of perception. Art inspires a leap of faith and a movement of the heart towards the beauty and magic of the unknown. My life and art have been defined by a journey through and towards the essence of all things, most especially the natural world and its unsurpassed beauty.
As a child I never quite fit in anywhere. Reading and drawing and the woods, meadows and creeks near my home were my most loyal friends. Over the years, I sought out increasingly intense immersion in the wilderness landscapes of oceans, rivers, mountains, deserts and the sky itself. Nature has always been my muse and my best friend.
