My artwork is an extension of views of nature, humanity, and our relationship to Earth. I believe strongly in a positive approach to life and our world, with the understanding that we, as stewards, have the responsibility of providing a better place for the next generation to thrive. I perceive a current emphasis of imagery emphasizes a deteriorating landscape and humanity's ugly side. To me, this approach is depressing and hopeless. As an alternative, I choose to focus on the incredible beauty that surrounds us, and in that way encourage people to preserve our remarkable planet.
