Artist, Painter | Medium: Charcoal | Read Artist Bio
Born and raised in Montana, I spent the first quarter century of my life behaving properly. After graduating from college I moved to Alaska to wander beyond the edge of my map, occupying the role of structural engineer during the day.
The off hours offered the freedom to experience wild places and wildlife and then translate those experiences to charcoal paintings. Gallery representation followed. Solo and group shows. The genesis of a career, 10 years ago.
Now I’m a bailed engineer-turned-artist; my days are filled to bursting between time spent with family, with community, in the mountains and in the studio.
Whenever I lament that my website isn’t more polished or that I’ve fallen woefully short of some social media benchmark (every single benchmark, actually), I see muddy footprints leading to my ice cream-coated little boys and I am reminded that living fully and behaving properly are likely to demand different destinations.
