As a wildlife and landscape artist, I paint flora and fauna subjects from around the world, often endangered species and the keystone species of our planet. I paint to share my love of creation, and to increase awareness of its beauty and our obligation to care for it. Sometimes, I also paint abstracts to express my perspective of the natural world and my viewpoint on environmental issues.

Always observing nature with wonder, I've been a self-taught and very intentional artist since before I was five years old. After many years invested in detailed drawing (realism), I began to prefer a looser style, so I explored every art medium I could find. What emerged was a special love for colour and texture. My paintings are planned in theory, but I seek whenever possible to paint intuitively, because too much careful planning can interfere with the creative outflow. I begin with a sketch, and I do an underpainting to set the tone of the piece. If any texture “sculpting” is needed, from the delicate shaping of strands of animal fur to the coarseness of granite rock, that adds time to the process.  

I work with high-quality paints and materials, and I have experimented with acrylic mediums to find what works best to achieve my desired 3D effects.  My works must be seen in person to fully enjoy them.
