About the Book
Children are drawn to animals. Just watch a kid’s reaction when she first sees a puppy. In my books my mythical self takes trips around the world visiting yaks in Asia, cows in Switzerland, gorillas, elephants, lions and camels in Africa, buffalos in the American West, and cows, horses and llamas on farms throughout the United States.
A former lawyer now pursuing a career in fine art, I am an expressionist painter trying to capture the spirit of my subject, be it man, animal or place. Since 2008 I have written, illustrated and published ten books of my animal paintings and limericks. Additionally, I have published two books of my landscape paintings, each painting relating to the writings of noted environmentalists, naturalists and poets. The theme of my books is the significance of our natural assets, whether they be forests, lakes, mountains, desert, swamps or the wild animals that inhabit the wilderness.
