Studying plants in their habitat is the first step in capturing their fleeting and often fragile nature.

I studied with internationally known botanical artists and at the Brookside School in Maryland.
Is there anything better than a day spent outside exploring in the woods? My years growing up on Lake Ontario in New York State cultivated in me a lifelong fascination with the natural world. My love of growing things led me to train with the Brookside School of Botanical Art and Illustration, just to see if I could learn to draw them. That ignited my dedication to botanical art, a path I have followed since 2004. Many of my pieces are now held in private collections. I credit the many internationally known artists for unveiling this world and teaching me.
Please take a few moments to view my galleries of North American botanical artwork and tropical beauties.
