I have a strong passion for reptiles and amphibians and I aim to use my work as a method to raise awareness for and educate others about these incredible animals. While I love working with both, amphibians will always be my first interest. Current estimates are that one third to one half of all amphibians are currently faced with extinction and it is my hope that I can show people animals they may never have seen or heard of and learn more about them. My Aposematic Minimalism series has been a great tool of conversation as it creates an eye catching and at times puzzling piece that always prompts a "how" or "what is that?". My greatest sources of inspiration are the works of Joel Sartore and Robin Moore and of course the natural beauty of the animals themselves who provide the inspiration for my color use.
