About_page_titles copy 2.png

I’m a Southern California native with a serious passion for art and biology.  I often venture outdoors with the intent of self educating and learning more about my surroundings whether through walking, field sketching, or birding.  This fervent desire and drive to learn plays a prominent role in the development of my illustrations and animations, as I seek to educate others about nature and science.  I often use humor in my artwork as a communicative tool to stimulate the public’s interest in biological subjects that have sparked my own curiosity.  When I’m not engaged in purely scientific topics, my artwork receives a lot of inspiration from sci-fi, fantasy, horror, games, and music.  This comes out in some of my animal related work as well as my ongoing series of gnome drawings.
