"Never go the same way twice."
Growing up, I would spend a lot of time at my family's cabin the northern Pennsylvania woods, it was there, on the early morning walks with my Grandfather that created my deep appreciation for nature.
I am an Environmental Education graduate turn self taught artist that spent 20 years in Atlanta fine tuning my craft.
In 2020, I returned to the same woods from my childhood and it was like retuning home. My artistic style and voice were immediately influenced by the sounds, smells, mountains and valleys that now greet me at my back door.
