The major theme of my work is trying to make sense of the beautiful chaos and interconnectedness of the natural world. I’m interested in ecology, biodiversity, folklore, and history as it pertains to the land and people.

My medium is mostly oil on canvas but I include some collage elements into a lot of my paintings. My style is based in the19th century and older botanical drawings and landscape paintings that I love, but it ventures into folk art and surrealism too.
