I am an educator, writer, artist, and naturalist—but not always in that order. I grew up in Troy, New York, traveled widely in my twenties, and set down roots not far from where I began.
What draws me in? As you can see from my sketches and paintings, most of my work is about nature, and I’ve long used art as a way to take a closer look at what’s around me. Sketching is a powerful tool for understanding and finding our place in a much wider world.
In recent years, I’ve also been drawn in by the way art can capture small moments of everyday life. The pages of my artist journals include drawings of travels, meals, family foibles, and seasonal cycles, alongside salamander migration or dragonfly sightings.
Thanks for being drawn in by what you see here…and do add a comment to share your thoughts!
