Essentially, I’m a self taught artist who has been obsessed with drawing animals since I was a toddler. Animals and I communicate easily, especially our domesticated friends. If I meditate on a particular breed or species, their form and actions seem to materialize in my mind’s eye like moving film, which I can then freeze and examine. Much of my early inspiration came from studying Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci along with horse and animal artists like George Stubbs, Edwin Landseer, Sam Savitt, Ralph Thompson, Wesley Dennis, Rein Poortvielt and C. W. Anderson. I am inspired by the contemporary greats such as Greg Beecham, Guy Coheleach and Robert Bateman. My aim is to capture the noble spirits of all creatures I paint or draw, and in some way bring their soul voices to the world.
