True North is about following your inner compass.

The internal compass that pulls you forward toward your authentic self and encourages you to pursue your life’s calling.

I’m a wildlife artist who has a thing for old weathered fenceposts and rusty equipment from a forgotten era. I gravitate toward the natural world and the great outdoors and I’ve been hiking and backpacking around Colorado and the West for over 25 years now. I love getting out into the rugged mountain wilderness - the further off the beaten path, the better.

I also have an affinity for topographic maps - which come in handy when you find yourself wandering off that beaten path. I find the textures and patterns created by the contour lines an interesting background element for my wildlife paintings and I like the fact that they represent a very specific place in the landscape.

When I started making prints of some of my paintings I realized that some people preferred to have one of my images on a specific topographic map that was more meaningful to them - where they grew up, their favorite hiking trail or vacation spot, the farmland that’s been in the family for generations - and I started heading in this new direction. I now offer this custom option in addition to all my other prints.

I’m fortunate to be able to combine so many passions into my art business and create paintings and prints that are unique and meaningful to my customers.
