ARTIST STATEMENT

Art is a powerful tool for communication. It has the ability to touch an individual from all angles whether it is intellectual, visceral or both. Nature does the same thing.

My goal as an artist is to communicate information about the natural world that is so fascinating through visual art.

Our planet is home to incredible and wondrous life. I feel most excited, both visually and intellectually in nature. Combining that with my passion for art leaves me with unrefined excitement and sharing even a fraction of that with the rest of the world is the best gift that I know how to give.
