I have a background in biology, and I find artistic inspiration in the natural world as well as in the mythological one. I first learned how to paint with acrylics as a child, studying with a local art teacher for seven years. After a long hiatus from painting, I picked up acrylics again in 2015. I love the colors and textures of our world, and I also enjoy capturing the moods of exotic locations and creatures.
In the past few years, I have also used photography as a creative outlet. I enjoy exploring, stopping often to observe beautiful flowers, intriguing animals, and inviting landscapes. My most recent trip to the Galapagos islands was a wonderful experience. I appreciated the one week excursion both as a nature-lover and a photographer.
