About the Artist
I AM MOVED TO CREATE ARTWORK—using photographic imagery, illustration, and acrylic painting—THAT REVEALS THE UNSEEN AND UNHEARD.
HONORING NATURE’S ICONIC BEAUTY Awestruck by the simple and exquisite detail of a seedpod, feather, leaf, or shell, I seek to honor and celebrate these stunning icons of our natural world, so we may see with fresh eyes that which is always there and everywhere.
NATURE AS A METAPHOR FOR HUMANKIND I believe Nature is our metaphor. If we listen, we can learn how she celebrates abundance and welcomes diversity, how she manages complex systems, how she unfolds beauty and brings joy. She is wise, renewable and selfless.
NATURE SPEAKS TO US By adding a literal component to my work, I have created a series of artwork illustrations to offer opportunities for Nature to speak to us—to lead, amaze, compel, and challenge us. To invite us to dance with her. Dwell with her. Remember her.
