Welcome to the Backcountry Artist Blog
I grew up surrounded by wilderness, not knowing much about the world at large, but knowing that I loved art and the natural world. As an adult, far away from where I started, I have learned to combine my passions as an artist and a naturalist, and am constantly striving to creatively express my love of nature.
Here you'll find what I hope will inspire you to appreciate beauty of the outdoors, take an adventure, and invigorate a sense of environmental stewardship.
