"There is something magical about putting pen to paper. The way ideas can be shared through this medium. Be it in words or, as in my case, images. I love to draw and have done so for as long as I can remember. In this series of works I attempt to connect with the viewer. To share my love of the natural world and my desire to embrace and protect the life that makes our little piece of the world so special. It would be a dark place without it!"
