It is an honor to carry on the tradition of painting our world’s incredible landscape. What an opportunity we have to walk out to our beautiful coastline or hike into a hidden valley with a canvas, and paints and return with artwork. The opportunity to study our world at the source is a constant inspiration. As I grow in this wonderful profession I am so grateful for all the opportunities I have had to improve my craft while holding on to my voice as an artist.
