Let’s peek at the miniscule and bring the hidden to the forefront. Let's study and investigate it. I want to freeze that moment of joy, suspense, fear, excited uncertainty in uncovering something regularly unseen. My work set in nature, celebrating animals and biological subjects, marrying themes from religious art and science illustration with memory, discovery and nostalgia.
