I paint vibrantly colored scenes from nature, using acrylic on canvas. My work is inspired by many hours spent in the field, studying the ecosystems where I live and participating in restoration work. Painting the beauty I see allows me to share the joy and peace I find out in nature. I believe that people need nature to thrive, and nature needs the dedication of people in order to survive. With my art, I bring people and nature together.
