I am a visual artist based in the Twin Cities. In 2016, I received an invitation to meet with the founder of the Natural Heritage Project, regarding a solo exhibition. That meeting and the vision for this project has changed my life. I found myself deeply impacted by the information I was gathering and inspired to share it visually in ways I had never before attempted.

Working with NHP gave me a platform from which to share important information and research regarding environmental care, in and invitational and non-inflammatory manner. My solo exhibition was an opportunity to find beauty and intrigue in the world that exists and to encourage curiosity and love that could lead to protective action.
