Artist Statement

My artistic mission is to enlighten the viewer, to create a clear awareness of the inherent spirit of the animals I portray. I strive to use my talents and skills to capture their individual essence. I believe each painting must have its own life and existence.  I do not do well with words. In their place, I use my art to celebrate wildlife and preserve it. In a world  where there is cruelty and the danger of extinction, I want to show the basic beauty that exists in all creatures.
