My paintings and prints of the Alaskan landscape represent the quiet unpretentious beauty of a land revered for its grandeur. Rather than portraying grand vistas and dramatic scenery, my subject matter is most often the small ever-changing treasures underfoot. The blooming and decaying forest floor, fungus, and berries consistently capture my attention. These easily overlooked features of the landscape hold great significance to me. They suggest an extraordinary and active world that exists quietly beside my own. My work provides a space to explore such topics while bringing attention to the wonder, beauty, consistency, and variety of my surroundings.
