I paint landscapes throughout the Southwest, both natural and man-made, that hint of the latent history of geologic features or residual effects of past human actions. Wherever I am, I record my environment, be it Los Angeles or a plane sitting on the tarmac of an international airport. Many of my paintings are of the Mojave Desert, where the pull of the open road ringed by distant mountain ranges satisfies the nostalgia of past road trips. By wandering, exploring, and camping my way through remote places, I find the landscapes that propel me to paint.
