My Bio Art has been an essential part of my being for as long as I can remember, and is deeply rooted in my lifelong connection to the natural world. A zoologist by training, I spent my professional life as a university professor, teaching and conducting research in environmental physiology--a career that left little time for things art-related. Nevertheless, when I did take the time to paint or do photography, I felt enriched by the experience and was always left wishing more hours were available in the day to develop these interests further. As a boy, I was fortunate to have lived in several rural settings, including the Yukon, which together with my field studies of wildlife, instilled in me a deep appreciation for the natural landscapes I now feel privileged to paint and photograph in my retirement.
