I want my artwork to express my passions and my infinite tie to the backwoods. ‘Backwoods Anchor’ has two true meanings to me. In life, an anchor is said to be a person or object that gives confidence in uneasy and uncertain situations. In the world of wildland fire, an anchor is a safe point to begin to construct line to fight fire. The world of art is neither easy or certain but I continue to construct every line of my artwork knowing that the backwoods gives me confidence.
