Artist Statement:

Since I was five years old, animals and nature have always been a part of my life.  As I grew, I started to explore painting and drawing as a way to express myself and my love for nature.  Through various mediums, I hope to share the beauty and intricacies of our natural world, and allow people to see scenes they might have not seen before.
