"I'm a native of Lexington, Kentucky and have a great love for the land around here. I spend as much time as possible outdoors hiking and painting. I'm often drawn to painting scenes with moving water such as streams and waterfalls, as well as undisturbed natural places unmarked by man. I also enjoy landscapes displaying a human presence that reflects a reverence for the land. Whenever I am in the natural world I feel a deep connection to Nature and to life, and my paintings are my sincere response to that connection."
