"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life" (Picasso).
I grew up in California where I received my art training. Since I was a teenager I told myself I'd move to Oregon, a land of beauty and waterways. Eventually I moved there gaining an even greater appreciation for the great outdoors and for our country's history. Outdoor life and our history became so precious to me that I decided to preserve them through photography. At the same time I also became interested in modern art. I knew I had to create something different and powerful. When I used to participate in art shows the guys were thoroughly captivated by my pieces.
I've moved again and I travel on vacation bringing more moments in time to my store at JLCArtscapes.imagekind.com/store/ more of what our land and history have to offer.
