My faith is the lens through which I see and engage with the world – a world brimming with flora and fauna. An enduring love of this natural world compels me to constantly explore and learn more about all its inhabitants. This has taken me from the wetlands of Florida, to the sands of the Chihuahuan Desert! More often than not, animals in the wild are skittish and must be drawn at breakneck speed before they vanish out of sight. That sense of urgency fuels my dynamic, gestural strokes and rapidly applied washes of color to create impressionistic sketches of God’s creatures.
