East Fork Wolf
When I paint it is intuitive, from the heart. I spend hours each day applying small dots of color one at a time with a tiny brush, and when I am finished I have a painting of something that reach my soul sometime during my life. My work is focused entirely on the contemporary landscape, wildlife, and flora of the wilderness regions of Alaska. With vast expanses of Alaska wilderness as my subject I've experienced extensive outdoor challenges, exploration, and adventure.
