Growing up, my favorite activity was driving seven hours down to Southern California's Mojave Desert with my family to hike and camp. Since then, my love affair with the desert and desert plants has continued. This opuntia (prickly pear), part of my digital desert plant series, shows one of my favorite desert events - the cactus bloom.
I am an illustrator specializing in botanical & zoological illustration covering a wide range of media including pen & ink stippling, watercolor, colored pencil, block printing, and digital art and design.
I have worked in two National Parks, helped conduct research on pollinator interactions within Vermont blueberry farms, and done two years of illustration and field work for the American Chestnut Foundation. My experience in the field of natural science and my love of the outdoors heavily informs and encourages my work.
