In an interview with X-Ray magazine's Gunild Syme, I'm able to sit and actually reflect on the journey of becoming a diver and artist - a journey that's been intertwined but being able to look back by speaking about my art and seeing it arranged as they've done so, gives me perspective and is very gratifying for me as an artist. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my motivations, why I paint and what it's been like capturing the world underwater for me.
I recently attended the Niagara Divers Association Annual Shipwrecks Symposium on my birthday and had an amazing time! As an avid scuba diver and lover of all things underwater, I was thrilled to attend this event with other staff from Dan's Dive Shop. The presentations were fantastic, covering topics from the wrecks of the Great Lakes to recent discoveries and expeditions.
