1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

When not making art I teach art at Bradshaw Mountain High School in Prescott Valley, AZ.

2. Why do you make art?

I feel compelled to paint. I've found paintings fascinating since I was a child, and the process for me is meditative. I paint every Sunday and always look forward to it.

3. What inspires you?

I'm primarily inspired by nature. I like to hike, kayak and sail with my 11-year-old son Sean, and I get most of my artistic inspiration on these outings.

4. What/who are your influences?

Past painters who have inspired and influenced me include Georgia O'Keeffe, Rockwell Kent and Lawren Harris. Current painters include David Mollett, Grant Pecoff and Hank Pitcher.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

Rockwell Kent. Great painter who lived an adventurous life.
