During a vacation in Mexico, I discovered a whole new world with my underwater camera; there were strange-looking creatures, feathery and iridescent plant life and a variety of beautiful shells and colorful corals. Since that time, the focus of my photography has been on my interest in natural history. The categorized insects, gems, botanical studies found in drawers at natural history museums have always intrigued me. The prints and paintings by John Gould, Martin Johnson Heade, and Audubon, and the illustrations of Ernest Haeckel, have also inspired me. It is these discoveries, artists and scientists that I seek to honor. My exhibit is about curiosity and wonder while exploring my own new worlds.
