Capturing the Experience of the Natural World

I’m an artist who uses color and light to connect people to the experience of place. For the last two years I’ve been making a small painting every day inspired by the landscapes I travel through, mainly near the roads and highways around Columbia, SC. I’ve lost count but I think I’m on something like #614 at this point.
