I'm a Houston-based artist who uses the expressive aspect of contemporary painting with the storytelling of book illustration. I create from my fascination with  cultural traditions around the globe, but particularly the fairy tales, folk tales, and mythology from Western Europe. From 2008 until 2011 I lived in Athens, Greece, wanting to immerse myself in Greek culture. Their myths and legends were largely created to understand our physical relationship to nature as well as the nature of ourselves. I also got to experience firsthand the beginnings of the economic catastrophe that is still shaping history. My recent work examines our changing relationship to nature, particularly in urban environments where we have lost touch with our ancestral traditions of revering and conserving nature.
