Reese's fine art is fueled by his love of nature and a personal fascination with symbolism and story. He believes art is most valuable when it is being used to explore, observe and discover qualities about ourselves and the essence of being alive. His wildlife series draws on the beauty of the wild and is directed at raising the awareness of our connection with nature through local species. His symbolism and story work remains a place of exploration, question and observations of life and the unknown.
