My artwork is a collection of imagery drawn from eco-systems that I come in contact with daily or during my travels. The imagery is combined into designs examining the complexity and diversity of surrounding eco-systems. I draw, print, and paint nature-inspired, line-driven imagery onto wood, paper, and fabric. My drawings are made from experiences and photographs collected outside and focus on the details of each unique plant, animal, or environmental element. I aim to visualize interactions within ecosystems and emphasize human connections to the natural world by layering the drawings into larger compositions. These compositions are compiled digitally into designs, which are then screen-printed onto wood, paper, or fabric. My wood panel paintings are then hand-painted with dyes and finished to draw out the natural grain of the wood. Each piece is a contained environment that comments on such themes as natural order, inter-dependence, balance, evolution, and environmental issues. I am always striving to generate a greater understanding of the natural world that surrounds me.
