The Artist


Matthew is a full time teacher of teenagers, father of five, and husband of Karen. He's an active member of Chattanooga Valley Presbyterian Church. People are the most important things in his life. 

Nature printing is his passion. The outdoors have been a sanctuary for him throughout his life growing up in a very turbulent family residing in Minnesota, Florida, and now Tennessee. Printing fish and plants connects people to their environment by opening their eyes to see and name the different creatures all around them and be filled with wonder.  

Matthew believes that introducing more people to this art form is a part of achieving wholeness as a human being by connecting to our world and is a powerful step towards greater environmental awareness and stewardship. 



Matthew is a member of the board of the Nature Printing Society.
