Art is for the birds
Sometimes I, like many of my generation, feel overwhelmed and scared about the present state of our planet.
I often feel helpless—like no matter what small thing I do in my daily life to do “better,” I can’t control the big picture. So I’ve made it my mission to create artwork with a purpose. I hope each piece I create can be a call to action—whether it’s a change in perception, behavior, or inspiration to give or volunteer for a cause. Thanks to the support of folks who have enjoyed my work, I’ve been able to make donations to a variety of charities supporting both wildlife conservation efforts and the protection of sensitive habitats. I’m always looking for new issues to highlight, so if there is a cause dear to your heart that you feel gets no attention, I’d love to hear about it!
A bit about me: I live in a tiny house on wheels built by myself and my partner, Brandon, in western Washington state. I’ve got a background in wildlife biology and a lot of birding experience under my belt, and consider myself equal parts illustrator and naturalist.
