"I crave the energy and passion expressed
through the visual arts. Painting is a necessity
to create harmony in my life and my scientific
career frequently inspires the paintings I

of scientists with a family history of artists. I
grew up in both Georgia and Wisconsin and
migrated out to Washington State after
studying Ecology and Biological Illustration. I
currently live in Seattle, painting when I am
not working as an environmental scientist. I
enjoy working in all painterly mediums but
use acrylic to create the vast majority of my
