My artistic journey began as a graphic designer and then a self-employed illustrator for the past 16 years. In 2003 I slowly started to gravitate to fine art, specifically landscape painting from life, en plein air. It has been a gradual process of aquiring as much knowledge as I can and paint, paint, paint. Another significant factor that has enhanced my ability as a landscape painter is the hours I have spent afield and the deep love of land that I have developed over the years. I have been an outdoorsman since I was a child and I am not sure if I do this because of my love of art or love of the outdoors but I think they have become one and the same for me. When you look at my work I hope you will see the love and appreciation I have for both.
