I am a nature painter, but contrary to the tradition I am not interested in portraying nature from a distance in grand panoramas and glorious vistas. My interest is in the intimate connections we have with nature, the ones we feel when we get up close, the ones we physically take in when we walk, climb and simply breathe in nature’s bounty. This is why I paint my subjects as portraits. Nature is full of family members and characters to know. The closer we are to them, the better we care for them, the richer our lives become.
