Nature plays an integral role in all of my artwork, as does the interaction between human beings and wildlife.

In this time when violence and disharmony seem so commonplace, I want my art to depict a better world with more magic and hope. I'm attempting through art to help revive the soul and change the hearts of the people who have lost the balance with nature and have become numbed to its essential elements.

Printmaking from woodcuts is my favorite media because it is a very slow process and allows me lots of time to think and envision my art.
