Growing up in the Foothills of Alberta I have spent most of my time outdoors living life to the fullest. No adventure is too big or crazy. A good adventure creates the best kind of stories and storytelling motivates me to get out of bed every day.
Whether it be a fishing tale about the 30inch monster rainbow trout that got away, or the epic powder day that made you wish you packed your snorkel. Or the time my brother dropped a rock on on my leg three pitches up a climb and I needed to get helicopter airlifted through the Rockies.
Not every adventure is exhilarating and life changing, but those adventures are the ones where you learn to notice the little things. How a person breathes in altitude, how a dragonfly skips across the water with grace, even how in the silence of the woods you can still hear so much life. These are the experiences that set my art apart from the others, the real experiences that spark my creativity and allow me to capture those real moments in time.
The moment’s where people say “you needed to be there to understand”, those are the moments I want to recreate.
