~~Once again do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs,
Which on a wild secluded scene impress
Thoughts of more deep seclusion; and connect
The landscape with the quiet of the sky.

William Wordsworth


About the Painter:

My greatest hope as a painter is to tell a story — of the pastoral and secluded places we cherish and return to, and of how these places lead us toward deeper contemplation, and nurture our souls.    Painting is for me a devotion of love for these places and an attempt to capture their essence with some truth and clarity. 

The artists and teachers who have most influenced my painting include Ron Boehmer, Nancy Bass, Rick Weaver, Frank Hobbs, Edgar Payne, John Carlson, William Langston Lathrop, George Inness, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, and many others.
