To celebrate nature, I paint the space between the threads that weave together the amazing tapestry of biodiversity. My work reflects the quiet connection of one life to another, and the ways in which we impact the Earth and all life forms, and are impacted by them. My work is about the unity of all life. It's about hope. It's about love for the natural world!
I'm a strong supporter of conservation, not only through my art and helping people understand our connection to nature, but through my commitment to on-the-ground stewardship efforts. I've volunteered at nature preserves near my home and during my travels. I've been dirty and sweaty and tired, but came home satisfied that I left a natural area better than I found it. I also donate funds to my favorite for-purpose organizations which are focused on conserving the natural world and helping wildlife live healthier lives.
I created two paintings for Silent Skies, AFC's artistic centerpiece, that were unveiled at the 2018 International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver. The exhibition, which features hundreds of bird images created by artists from around the globe, is raising awareness for avian conservation everwhere! So exciting!
