Some Bring Gifts
Lost and Found
Pine Needles

Since childhood I’ve wanted to be both artist and naturalist. I grew up on a river bank in Northwest Indiana, drawing, painting, chasing fireflies, collecting healing plants, and watching snapping turtle lay their eggs every spring, until they didn’t anymore. This sort of fragile and complicated interrelationship with the wild world has been a lifelong fascination.

Through these bodies of work,  I’m deeply looking and listening, leaning in to change, making with what’s at hand, with forces that be.
