My art represents deeper experiences and observations in my life. Whether I'm sitting with a plant in the scientific art of botanical illustration, or seeing a visionary piece unfolding, I am engaged in a magically intimate process. 


Some works are the product of analysis, research, and or of a particular technique. Whatever the process, each art work's purpose is to entertain, evoke, inspire, teach, or remind the viewer of a part of themselves.


I am often an instrument of these works and am in the audience as much as a fresh new viewer is. The communication that is finally revealed to me, often years after a work has been completed, is quite humbling.


consider myself as a map maker, and I trust the process of creativity for the journey's unfolding and illustrating.

Enjoy, and please contact me. All comments are welcomed.
