I am interested in nature and animals and the relationship between animals and humans that so often pushes animals to one side.
Our country is home for our native wildlife; animal lives who live alongside us but also struggle to survive when human paths cross theirs.
I am fascinated by the universe and concepts of interconnectedness, how we connect with the universe, each other and the animal kin on our planet, our environment and the trouble it is in.
I often work with pencil and pen and ink; I love their immediacy and spontaneity. I also work with digital tools to create archival prints.
I have a degree in Illustration and continue to learn about the representation of animals in art and illustration and use that knowledge to help advocate for animals.
