"Nature has long been a source of inspiration for me as an individual and as an artist. As an artist I want to convey a positive message with the hope that people are inspired to learn more about and appreciate the natural world. I believe in conservation though education in hopes to inspire positive involvement. As a signature member of Artists for Conservation, I hope to raise awareness and support for conservation organizations around the world.                                                                                                                                                        "

The Desert Southwest has long been my home. I am passionate about the desert from its grand Saguaro cacti to the desert tortoises that roam the area and all the many wonderful things that make up this desert. I currently volunteer with and support  the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum working with the Art Institute. We encourage adults and children to become involved in educational enrichment activities.
