I grew up on an old farm in Northern Virginia and never lost a child’s fascination with those objects that appeared as treasures in my formative environment. My work reflects this reverence for the natural world and is influenced by Islamic and Buddhist art and the Asian aesthetic of beauty. Over the 45 years I have been making art, drawing and printmaking have consistently been my focus and the natural world my subject matter.
I am an animator and media producer. Anim8Nature is a series of documentary animations exploring science with art to inspire children and families to carefully observe and become stewards of the natural world.
I have been a teacher for over 45 years. I love sharing how visual learning and making things have enriched my life. I write about kids, art and science and technology on my blog.
