FINE ART 

Biography


‍ I love painting the natural world. I enjoy the challenges of capturing the texture of fur, creating the color and sheen of feathers and finding the expressive soul in the eyes of an animal, this is what keeps me intrigued.  I have a degree in Advertising Design but my passion is in painting. I am self taught in watercolor, oils, and acrylics. I have always loved animals. Maybe it was the countless hours I would spend studying all the yellow iconic National Geographic's, Outdoor Life or Field and Stream magazines. Or the excitement of watching Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom or Nature on PBS and I didn’t want to miss any of it! When I was in grade school struggling with all of the boring school stuff I loved drawing and wildlife is what I would naturally focus on and it still excites me today! I love the honesty and rawness of nature and how it exist whether humans interact with it or not. I can’t image a world without the wonder of animals!

My work is in many Private Collections.
