From an early age, I recall attempting to imagine what the landscape around me in south-central Nebraska looked like before the roads, towns, farmsteads, and fences. As an adult now, I find myself seeking out environments that show little to no impact from industrialization. My artwork attempts to convey my explorations and experiences in these environments. Ultimately, my objective is to motivate viewers to investigate the subjects of my work. I hope to inspire others to discover a deeper appreciation for the natural world.
