Through my work I aim to bridge art, biology, and education to encourage others to view the natural world with a more curious and conscious eye. My personal work depicts intimate ecological portraits, often focusing on species interactions, cycles, and broadly explores fascinating biological phenomena. I otherwise enjoy portraying nature in various contexts, whether it take the form of a detailed scientific illustration or a colorful children's book. Though I work largely in graphite, colored pencil, gouache, and digital media, I love working with any substance that allows expression of fine detail and texture. 

Aside from illustration, I am a full time university biology instructor, play hours of fetch, run, cycle, garden, and spend as much time outside as possible. I live on the Eastern edge of the Flint Hills of Kansas with three pup companions, a human companion, and a small flock of chickens.
