"My landscapes reflect a lifetime passion for the American West, especially Southern Utah. My choice of subject reflects my fascination with place - and the occasional out-of-place. I strive for the intimacy and particularity of a portrait, with a mood of tender and sometimes tenderly amused observation. "
