Biography

"I grew up in Northern Nevada in the heart of the desert, but I always dreamed about the ocean and tropical lifestyle. This desire led me to paint images from the locations I envied. Then one day, a professor in college told me the one piece of advice he would give any painter is to "paint what you know." This opened my eyes to the gorgeous desert I grew up in. I started to see the vivid colors that encompassed the desolate, dry landscape that so many people despised. I learned to see the animals of the desert in a new light. I began to fall in love with the desert. "
