Artist's Statement
I have had a lifelong passion for animals, and wildlife holds a special fascination for me as a painter. Like us, every living creature has a story to tell, and with each of my paintings I strive to draw the observer into their world, if only for a moment. What would it feel like to be a lion awakened from a mid-day snooze, or an owl soaring through the clouds at daybreak? As I photograph the animals, I hope to capture the essence of that story. As a painter, I want to immerse myself in that animal’s world, and then set their story free.

In our busy lives, it is so easy to become detached from nature, lose our connection to the earth, and forget the common destiny that we share with every creature on the planet. By celebrating the lives of these animals and their disappearing habitat through my art, I hope to raise awareness to their fight for survival in our increasingly threatened world. Their future is our future.

If my work touches the heart of the observer, then I have begun to achieve my goal.
