“The Calm Beyond” acrylic, 20″ x 30″


My creative process is intricately woven with my connection to the environment. The sensation of standing before the unknown, with its simultaneous feeling of wonder and caution, resonates deeply within me and is evident in all of my artistic creations. My muse often finds its roots in a specific location or moment, but as I paint, I relinquish any predetermined intent and permit my intuition to steer the course. The final artwork may bear little semblance to the original setting, as each piece takes on a life and narrative of its own.

“Seabirds’ Wings” mixed media 18×24″


My objective as an artist is to portray the interdependent relationship between the natural world and the living cosmos. Whenever feasible, I venture to ecologically delicate regions, delving into the wisdom of indigenous cultures and the environments upon which they rely.

Frequently, I capture nature through the lens of environmental sustainability, offering the perspective of the plant life and fauna that inhabit a particular landscape.

“Kili’ohu” mixed media, 30″ x 24″


We currently find ourselves at a crucial moment in the history of our planet. The consequences of climate change, habitat destruction, and human interference are more conspicuous than ever before. My artwork stands as a testament to my profound concern for the changing state of our world.

“Summer Nights” mixed media, 18″ x 24″


Through visually captivating landscape compositions constructed using hand-painted recycled papers, acrylic paints, and texture media, I depict the fragility and endurance of our planet. My work encourages viewers to embark on a journey of contemplation, empathy, and evolution. My art is a potent means of conveying and interpreting the profound beauty and intricacy of nature.

“Morning Dew” mixed media, 24″ x 24″


My artistic background is enriched by an array of influences and learning experiences. Despite having a formal education in international development, English, and economics, my most significant insights have been drawn from my lifelong connection with the natural world. Growing up in proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains and exploring the eastern coastline instilled in me a profound reverence for the environment and an awareness of humanity’s influence upon it.

“Seasons Change” mixed media, 24″ x 30″


Over many years, I worked as a professional writer and photographer for Horticulture Magazine and Virginia Gardener. I also authored a book on sustainable gardening and food sources for the Virginia Cooperative Extension. These experiences brought me closer to the delicate ecosystems that sustain humankind and ultimately kindled my aspiration to produce visual art that elevates our relationship with the Earth.
