"Wildlife has always been my main love, at least in my paintings. The creatures that I strive to capture in my art are the soul of my creative existence.  Since I first began painting my own dogs, cats and horses, I knew that animals would be the center of my artistic life.

The animals that I paint are all animals that I love.  Some I have raised from babies, some are wild creatures that I was blessed to touch or just admire from a distance.  Regardless of where or how I found them,  the constant truth of it all is that I have fallen in love repeatedly during my life with dogs, cats, possums, raccoons, horses, giraffes, whatever I was sketching at that time.  My life has been filled with wonderful relationships that have lasted from moments to years.

I have tried to turn some of the results of my paintings back over to the animals that made it possible with zoo shows and private shows in which I donate up to 50% of my profits to the animal group sponsoring me.  If your organization is interested in having a show, please contact me at:
