I love to be immersed in nature whenever possible, and my work is the perfect way to make this an essential part of the process. I am also an enthusiastic communicator, and painting is just one way to tell a story. It enables me to draw people in to what I am most passionate about. I feel incredibly fortunate to be successful at doing a job that doesn't ever feel like a job.
Great studio! Guy is such a nice person, makes you feel comfortable no matter what art skill level you are at. Top notch!
