Peaks and Valleys – Mixed Media – 2017
Water and Snow
The main inspiration for this work has been my love for both skiing and white water kayaking. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I’m fortunate to access to ski areas like Alpental, Crystal, Bachelor, and Whistler. Inside my kayak, I’m paddling down Snoqualmie River, Green River, and Hood River, to name a few, each of which has imprinted its particular mark in my creative process.
By advancing my skills, I was naturally drawn to the challenge of each of these magical places. However, like any magical world, it’s not easy to arrive there, and the journey can be dangerous. Explorers should always consider the risk of extreme sports. These paintings are the personification of the thrill seeker.
