In my art, I attempt to capture a moment of time, which I hope will retrieve forgotten memories for the viewer, provide a moment of tranquility or simply offer an alternative perspective toward a subject.
Depicting primarily the beauty and diversity of North American wildlife, I find myself constantly rediscovering the magnificence of our wilderness and its inhabitance.
I have been blessed with a wonderful life companion and wife (Helene) from Drottningholm, Sweden, who provides constant smiles, inspiration and gentle reminders of what is truly important in life.
I spend my time divided between painting, building guitars, fly rods, pottery and writing, as well as helping taking care of our 2 Newfoundland dogs, 1 wonderful rescue dog and our newest addition, a Leonberger dog (all lap dogs) squeezing in some golf, fishing and doing all those little projects that need attention after a long Winter.
