As you can tell, I love water. And although I have painted other subjects over the years, it is the painting of water that brings my soul the most joy.
Inspiration for my art originated from the lakes I explored as a child in Northern Minnesota.
As I travel the world, I cherish memories of adventures near the water with my family from exploring the hot springs in National Parks to paddling in a native canoe in the Panama Canal.
For me, water is about connection.
- Water connects us in our humanity across the globe no matter our race, ethnicity, beliefs, or differences.
- Water connects us to a sense of calm and our creativity.
- Water connects me to the reality that life is in continuous motion, as water is ever-changing it encourages me to continue to change and grow.
My artwork connects loving, fun, adventurous experiences with water to be soaked in from the walls of luxury spas, resorts, or within your own home.
