The world is filled with special places, places that hold important meaning to the people that have been there and experienced the uniqueness of each site. So much of our lives are tied up in the memories of places. I want to capture those memories forever.
Stopping time. Painting is the one thing in my life that stops time. I can paint for four hours non-stop and it feels like thirty minutes.
I feel like every scene is special and only exists in a fleeting moment. Things change. Lighting changes, seasons change, and over time what was there today, is different tomorrow. Painting stops time in that way too. It's a way to preserve the intersection of a fleeting moment with a specific view point.
I strive to create art that represents the highest achievable standards of excellence and am constantly pushing myself to obtain higher levels of quality in design and execution.
I'm an Idaho native, but have lived is several places throughout the US. I love to travel and I love to paint - mostly landscapes and cityscapes, but really anything that catches my eye. I'm influenced by many master painters of the past as well as many contemporary artists.
I'm a member of the Oil Painter's of America, Boise's Swell Artist Collective, and I was chosen by the Idaho Power Company to create work for their upcoming centennial celebration in 2016.
I'm always looking for ideas, opportunities, and feedback. Please do not hestitate to send me an email. TD
