Since childhood, I have navigated the world sketching and painting. Through traveling and casting a wide net, I continue to pull in a diverse collection of colors and imagery with which I try to synthesize and portray the beauty of nature and the power of the human spirit. Over the past sixteen years I have been fortunate enough to be the Artist-in-Residence at dozens of hotels and resorts across the globe. A favorite destination has been the Maldives where we dive and make art while surrounded by sea. This collection of paintings completed entirely on islands smaller than a Home Depot parking lot attempt to express the depth and richness of the colors and feelings elicited by our island home and the vast Indian Ocean with all its currents, corals and life.
