Since an early age, I have been drawn to bold landscapes and panoramic scenery. Early childhood backpacking trips to the Sierra Nevada Mountains galvanized my love for nature. It wasn't until later in life that I began taking a serious approach to capture this beautiful imagery in photography while living in the Rocky Mountain Region of the United States.
My artistic inspirations have mostly come from painters, particularly Dutch masters Vermeer and Rembrandt, contemporary American painter Edward Hopper and German-American landscape painter Albert Bierstadt. I also consider film cinematography to have played a major role in my discovery as a photographic artist. My love for movies and their scenery, props, color tones and mood weigh heavily into how I compose my images.
I choose to compose and edit my images with the intention of creating a “painterly” feel and texture. I print all of my paper images in-house in order to maintain the integrity and quality of my prints. I use only the finest materials to provide a texture and depth to my images. My selected images are printed on acid-free paper to preserve their archival properties for generations.
