Artist Statement: I am elated by the interacting colors, patterns and forms found in nature, which seem to create momentarily stilled compositions for me to witness. I find creative motivation when looking at the soft powdery scales of a butterfly, the mud clogged roots of a flower, or the iridescent sheen illuminating the feathers of a bird. These experiences inspire me to reach for my paintbrush or pencil. It is my hope that my artwork creates a window into the natural world, where it can be appreciated, seen anew and celebrated.

I am interested in exploring the intimate and microscopic landscape found within Zion National Park. I am excited about having visual conversations with rock striations, aquatic invertebrates, and canyon clinging plants. I long to witness the park’s diverse wildlife, and to honor it through my paintings and drawings.
