Art of the Backcountry is my way of finding the space between abstract and landscape and expressing what makes me feel most alive. This series is based on my experiences backcountry skiing in the pristine places of the Colorado Rockies. I’m inspired by the forces of nature in the changing wind, light, shadows and color of the landscape. There is risk and reward here. For me, these mountains, rocks, trees and snow have a breath and life of their own. I find exhilaration in climbing by my own power to an awe-inspiring place with little or no human structures. No safety net. It can take hours to get to a place where you take just a single ski run down. But the journey is worth it. These places are defiantly large, untamed and amazing.
