As a dedicated naturalist and an inquisitive artist, I attempt to approach my subjects with new eyes every time I draw or paint. To me, art and science are inseparable, as both rely on the use of keen observation to bypass preconceptions about a subject and understand its true nature. Each discipline informs and enriches the other. Drawing is the best way I know to explore, celebrate, and document the beauty and intricacy of the natural world, and to ignite that same passion in others. I invite you to share my interest, delight, and concern for this planet by exploring my artwork and website.
"Does there not exist a high ridge where the mountainside of 'scientific' knowledge joins the opposite slope of 'artistic' imagination?"
~ Vladimir Nabokov
