  • As a child, I ran wild through the woods behind my home, climbed trees, made mud volcanoes and learned the names of spring wildflowers on long hikes by my mother’s side.  More than anything, nature inspires my work, and I hope I can, in turn, inspire the next generation with artwork that encourages young and old to grow their curiosity and creativity by exploring this great big beautiful world.
