My goal as an artist is to illustrate my lifelong passion for wildlife and natural beauty in a unique way. I would like my art to help convey important ideas relating to avian and wildlife conservation, environmental science and endangered species. I have been an artist and scientist since a young child. I received a scholarship and attended University of the Arts, in Philadelphia, PA. In addition, I have an A.S. in Animal Health Technology and a B.S. in Biology from Colorado State University. I have worked as an educator in the veterinary and environmental science fields, as well as a naturalist and Park Ranger in Grand Teton National Park.
