Justin's paintings balance abstract imagery combined with a wide variety of realistically rendered species of birds, which the artist has sought out while on various birding excursions.

Justin says, "The paintings give an impression of the natural areas I've explored, while informing the viewer about their environmental fragility. Very sensitive to their environments, birds are often a good indicator of the health of a particular ecosystem... Searching out and identifying various species has led me to explore Michigan's parks and wetlands. Rather than focusing on the loss of habitat, I've explored the unique environments of individual species, many of which are maintained by conservation efforts...Drawing on memories, natural forms and textures from the environment, I work intuitively, creating abstract suggestions of the landscape that remind me of the places where I've sought out birds and wildlife."
