Critical Description of Work:
My nature writing focuses on the beauty, wonder, and intrinsic value of the natural world. Painter Georgia O?Keeffe once said, ?Nobody sees a flower, really; it is so small. We haven?t time, and to see takes time, like having a friend takes time.? I hope my work encourages readers to really see what?s all around them, and help protect and conserve it.
