Artist Statement

Having been raised in the West, I have a deep love for the landscapes of the American West. I enjoy roaming around Idaho and neighboring states with my camera creating photographs. I get inspiration from many mid-twentieth century modern artists . I am particularly influenced by Mark Rothko, Richard Diebenkorn, Barnett Newman, Frank Stella, and Helen Frankenthaler. All of whom are known for creating abstract paintings with intense color. I often use a variety of techniques in the camera and in post-production to create an abstract effect. I also love taking my camera out into nature or into different cultures and work at capturing a tack sharp representation of what I am seeing with my eyes. I have fun showcasing the breadth and depth of the photographic medium.
