My Newest Paintings!

I'm on a mission to capture the essence of all the U.S. National Parks, and I'm thrilled to say I'm more than halfway there! My ultimate ambition? To explore every one of these breathtaking and sacred space. In the meantime, I owe a debt of gratitude to Scott Desatnick for igniting my inspiration to paint Gates of the Arctic National Park. What a fitting name for such an expansive and stunning landscape!

If you've had the pleasure of visiting Gates of the Arctic or any of the other parks I've painted, drop me a line! I'd love to hear about your experiences and adventures. And to Scott, a heartfelt thank you—I've got a special surprise headed your way!

When I was researching Gates of the Arctic, I came across Kenai Fjords National Park, and was awestruck by the stark and simple beauty of it. It inspired me to include something special, based on an amazing experience I had at the Atlanta Aquarium.
