Ever since I was a little girl, I have been drawing animals. In fact, I can't even remember a time when I wasn't into art. In school, much to my teachers' disapproval, I covered my notes and homework papers with small drawings of cats, horses, and a variety of imaginary creatures.
In college, I studied biology, and I am currently working seasonal jobs as a field biologist. I love working outdoors, with as much interaction with wildlife as possible. I have always loved animals, and I think it's no surprise that my artwork focuses on the same subjects. I currently work primarily in soft pastels and acrylic.
As an avid birder and biologist, I am constantly and painfully aware of the many, many threats that so many species and their habitats have to face. From climate change, habitat destruction, and pollution to invasive species, poaching, and wildlife harassment, humans have had tremendous negative effects on the natural world.
Through my art, my goal is to share with you the beauty and incredible diversity of our planet, and all the wonderful things that could some day be lost. Treasure the earth and all its inhabitants, for we depend on them far more than most of us realize!
