new work : moondust, constance, live & august prints!

“Constance” is a sky-high view of the Olympic Mountains from Anderson to Iron peaks. A highly-textured and monochrome piece with layers of gold leaf, iridescence and acrylic.

 

 

“Moondust”

My inspiration is always drawn from nature, and the past year has been a deep introspection into our relationship with the moon and her phases and cycles. We have much to learn from paying attention to this and learning to ‘go with the flow’ rather than against it.

 

 

“August”

The Climax Bound Collection is focused on abstraction.

For me, abstraction comes from within.  When reaching those physical and mental peaks in life, I see color; wrestling, dancing, flowing color.  I want you to strive for those personal peaks in your life as well. I want to inspire you to seek your maximum potential, and to feel your connection with everyone and everything in order to reach that potential.

My abstract pieces are a journey to create my vision through the use of textures, materials and pigment. I encourage you to touch them, and to feel and absorb the energy that went into the piece from the state of inspiration through to fruition.

bound : the piece + the story

nature art, mountain art, panoramic painting

 

This piece. Where do I even begin. It has been living and breathing in my mind for so long now, I can’t believe it’s finally in physical form.

I took the picture (the one at the top of this post) that inspired this piece when we were home in NW Montana for our best friend’s wedding in August of 2012.

Lake Koocanusa – or the Rez if you’re local – is one of the most magical places on earth.

 

And I’ve seen some epic nature on these travels.

When I witnessed the unexplainable beauty of Norway, I understood why our ancestors settled here. Nothing else they had seen across the North American continent would have come close to the beauty of their motherland, until they reached the mighty peaks and water bodies of NW Montana.

It took me a long time to realize how fortunate I was to grow up in such unspoiled surroundings.

Luckily for me, it has imprinted my soul and is the root of my inspiration.

 

This scene; lolling on a boat in the middle of the lake, dusk approaching, total silence but the water gently lapping at the boat and a few happy birds singing to each other…this is bliss.

Those moments of joy, peace, gratitude and oneness with nature.

Remembering that we ARE nature and we are OF nature.

 

Those are the moments I paint.

Completing and sharing this particular piece with you feels like coming full circle.

I left my hometown thinking that my dream of being a full time artist would never actually happen. To pursue other things because I was meant to do other things.

But it just happened in a different way than I thought it would. And what an incredible journey it’s been so far.

This piece is culmination, it is ancestry, it is home, and it is gratitude in painting form.

 

Cheers to you, my sweet Montana. You are cherished and appreciated <3
