Artist Statement
Growing up in and around the wilderness of the Sierra Nevada, I developed a love of birds at an early age, and there is nothing I enjoy more than being in nature and observing these remarkable creatures. I have a particular passion for raptors, and my goal is to help others understand and appreciate the role they play in our environment.
