Artist Statement

I am a self-taught artist working primarily in color pencil and watercolor. I was formally trained in the sciences and I believe that science and art are interconnected. Several years ago I discovered a passion for drawing and painting animals, birds, and botanicals. In all of my work I strive to capture the spirit of my subjects, not just a likeness.
