I love this quote:

"Look, I want to love this world as though it’s the last chance I’m ever going to get to be alive and know it." -Mary Oliver (October)
Look, if you are reading this- I am thankful for you. I'm thankful for this world we live in.  I know we can make it healthy and wonderful for ourselves and our children and our neighbor's children... I am thankful you took the time to explore my work.

Artist's Statement:

Humanity will decide our ecological future in the coming decade. This is an emergency not only for humanity, but for every species on planet Earth. 

As an Artist, Art Educator & Environmental Educator, I am interested in the intersection of community and creativity. I see ecological connection among species as integral to Earth’s comprehensive community. Committed to listening to scientific wisdom and inspired by the rise of the global youth climate movement, my perspectives as mother, cancer survivor and global citizen compel me to use my skills to represent species who have no means of advocating for themselves.

My acrylic on wood paintings bring to mind ways in which people, nature and objects interact and depend upon one another to form a complex whole that operates (often unrecognized by the participants) as a system.

My current work addresses Threatened, Endangered and Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) in Texas. 5% of the sale of these works will be donated to TPWD Nongame Fund .

You can help by writing your U.S. House Representative to urge them to co-sponsor the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (RAWA), H.R.3742
