In 2015 and 2016, I visited Cuba twice; staying in Havana, Trinidad, Cienfuego, Santa Clara, Remedios, Santiago de Cuba, Bayamo, Manzanillo, Guantanamo, and Baracoa.

Lights, energy, culture, history and mystery fill London. From 2011 to 2013, London was home to us. It is a city that draws us in. Sometimes, its allure is veiled in fog; other times the lights of night illuminate its beauty in a new way.
These pieces showcase the mood and mystery experienced while living within this great city.
Vast, open vistas span across the state of North Dakota, my birth state. It is here, where I developed a thirst for exploration, an appreciation for simpler features, and an admiration for outdoor nature.
