Artist's Mission

   A love for the natural world is a gift I received at very young age and so it is still.  My life has been a journey to knowunderstand and appreciate, as individuals,  the animals that share our world.  The drive beind my art is not so much to paint how an animal looks, but rather to capture who they are in a fleeting moment.  I paint to know them and to explore what it is to be them, in essence.  With line and color, it is their voices that I am trying to find. I hope my paintings can be a celebration of all life and as Henry Beston so eloquently expressed:

  " We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and err greatly . For animals shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the web of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth. "
