Fishing is my passionate exportation to creating art. Casting a fly rod is a stylish gesture carried throughout my technique and composition. I seek to capture superlative experiences by channeling outdoor culture and challenging the limitations of nature above and below the water surface. The poetic nature of fishing is the foundation for my enthusiasm as an artist and art educator. Fishing is a transcending activity that can be rewarding and disappointing. Teaching art and working in the studio is fishing; all demand a great deal of patience, urgency and an understanding of circumstantial opportunities.
