Imagine owning A One-Of-A-Kind Piece of Skiing Heritage

In celebration of over 30 years painting the world's most beautiful mountains and ski resorts, I have opened my private collection of original paintings and sketches for sale.

Sign up here for future releases of original art.


Bromley is one of the oldest ski areas in Vermont, with the first trails cut in 1936 by the WPA on the side f Bromley Mountain. I sketched and painted Bromley in 2007, and the map is still in use today.


Cranmore, located in North Conway, New Hampshire, dates back to 1937, and was home to the Skimobile lift for 50 years. I painted Cranmore's ski map most recently in 2006, and have also painted it in summer.


Originally opened in 1966 by former New Hampshire Governor Sherman Adams, Loon is one of the most popular resorts in New Hampshire. I've sketched and painted Loon several times, going back to 1989.


With three zones to ski in, Okemo has something for every skier or snowboarder. I've sketched and painted Okemo several times over the past 30 years.

One special piece, my 1990 painting of Okemo from Snow Country Magazine, will be auctioned to raise money for the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.


With its 2,300 vertical feet on Mt. Mansfield, Stowe has a lot to cover. I first captured Stowe in 1990 and worked to include the peak of Mt. Mansfield and the town of Stowe.


Spread across Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen, Sugarbush has a great variety of terrain for all skiers and snowboarders. This collection includes my sketches of Sugarbush from the early 1990s.

Waterville Valley

Ski trails on Mt. Tecumseh, home to Waterville Valley, date back to 1934. Today, Waterville Valley has 62 trails and 12 lifts. I've sketched and painted Waterville Valley since 1989.


Utah is home to many ski resorts and great snow. I've sketched and painted nearly every resort in the state, as well as a number of regional views and National Parks. The variety always makes a good challenge to capture.

Limited Edition Canvas Art Prints

I have released a limited edition run of top quality, canvas art prints for sale. Only 25 signed-and-numbered prints will be available for each mountain. The collection includes select mountains from Utah and Colorado.

I am releasing a few NFTs as part of the Utah collection. For those new to NFTs (like all of us, frankly), it means buyers own a unique, digital representation of the original ski maps.
