Although I was born in Chicago, from a young age I was always hiking through prairies, sandy beaches and forests with my amateur botanist, photographer father looking for rare native plants to identify and photograph. Nature has always been one of my greatest inspirations, but I am deeply worried about it. This collection of paintings and drawings of wild native Midwest flora and fauna appear to be fading away because too many species are threatened and endangered. So, get outside and enjoy nature and her varied habitats before it all gets destroyed and disappears.
