Art has always been a source of joy and peace in my life, but it isn't until recently that I have sought to share my art with anyone other than my closest friends and family. I've been a science teacher for ten years and while I have enjoyed it, I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue a passion rather than a profession. While I do not have a formal training in any particular medium I am in constant pursuit of improving my craft by trying different media and techniques. Growing up my two greatest interests were science and art. My love of science has definitely influenced my art in how I view subjects, but also in that I find most of my inspiration in natural forms.
