I've been drawing and painting all my life, ever since I was able to pick up my first crayons! The subject matter hasn't changed much as I've always loved to draw bugs and animals and anything I could find outside... Especially bees! I now prefer acrylic paints or colored pencils to crayons (but still love to get my hands on a nice pile of sidewalk chalk), and use most of the same bright colors I loved as a kid. I enjoy painting flora and fauna I see around me in Maryland and Pennsylvania, and hope to bring new awareness and light to plants and animals that people see frequently. I also enjoy painting tropical rain forest plants, as their bright colors lend themselves so well to my color palette of choice, and their beautiful shapes make for stunning compositions. Since I've always loved nature, I care very much about the environment and have been working hard to turn my art and business (and life in general) in a more green direction. My prints are being switched to packaging in biodegradable plastic sleeves, with backing board made from 100% recycled content. (Some prints are offered on Hahnemühle sugarcane bagasse paper, which is a byproduct of sugarcane production.) I hope that when others see my paintings of nature, they're reminded of how beautiful and unique each part of the environment is and will take small steps toward conservation themselves.
