I am moved by the half light of dawn and dusk, and my paintings are inspired by the Greater Yellowstone country of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming.

A piece of my heart resides there, due in large part to the poetry associated with the convergence of family and friends, moving water and mayfly hatches.

Influences include Utah artist and friend Connie Borup, Mark Rothko, Wolf Kahn, Russell Chatham, the Impressionists, and the American tonal painters George Inness and Albert Ryder.

My book Moving Water: An Artist’s Reflections on Fly Fishing and Friendship was published in 2009.

I am proud that my art donations have raised more that $30,000 for various national and regional river conservation non-profits.

A graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, I live with my family in Salt Lake City and on Blaine Spring Creek in Montana’s Madison Valley.
