Artist Bio

My 25-year science career (retiring 2015) enabled me to travel to many extraordinary places, from the deep canyons and high deserts of western North America, to Alaska and the Siberian Arctic, and more. These magical places, their natural wonders, ancient and traditional cultures, and other mysteries are the inspiration for my art. I generally seek to portray accurately detailed landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and people in my paintings, leaning towards Natural Realism, though sometimes with an Impressionistic style. I have been working for five years on a series of paintings entitled “Wild Alaska” to document the natural and cultural heritage of Alaska’s parks and wildlife areas.
