I am moved by the half light of dawn and dusk, and my paintings are inspired by the Greater Yellowstone country of the American West. A piece of my heart resides there, due in large part to the poetry associated with the convergence of family and friends, moving water and mayfly hatches.
Influences include Utah artist and friend Connie Borup, Mark Rothko, Wolf Kahn, Russell Chatham, the Impressionists, and the American tonal painters George Inness and Albert Ryder.
My book Moving Water: An Artist’s Reflections on Fly Fishing, Friendship and Family was the Outdoor Writers Association of America 2019 Book of the Year.
I am proud that my art and book donations have raised more that $100,000 for national and regional river conservation organizations.
A graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, I live with my family on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake in Last Chance, Idaho and in Salt Lake City.
