Paintings - Drawings - Sculpture

The aim of my work is to translate my nature experiences into art objects. I spend a lot of time in nature—hiking, taking photographs, meditating, all as part of my creative process. I cultivate my inspiration through exploration of natural environments and ecosystems. I find my subjects (or perhaps they find me) during these nature experiences. To achieve my aim stylistically, I employ what I call “heightened naturalism.” This term describes how I focus on details and color as a tool to magnify and capture the essence of my subjects.
I choose birds and other animals, often endangered, as my art subjects to record my spiritual connection to them, to explore their totemic/symbolic meaning, to share their beauty, and to add to the conservation discourse. My goal is for the viewer to walk away with a new respect for nature and a desire to both seek out their own nature experiences and to preserve those sacred places where these beings can still be found.
