Nature, color and climate change inspire my art.  By representing the beauty and diversity  of the natural world, I hope to inspire viewers to take a closer look at the world around us, and ultimately be more thoughtful and careful stewards of our planet.   I bring my background in marine biology and environmental studies and the experience of years spent both on the ocean and in the backcountry to my art.  I paint, print, work in wax and mosaic to represent large and small organisms, from frogs and jellyfish to DNA and diatoms.
