The Artist

"I can’t imagine doing a painting without an animal or bird of some sort.  It has been a constant theme in my art, and it is foremost in my mind when I start a new painting.  Since I can’t commandeer Noah’s Ark, I can love animals by painting them; leaving a legacy of their existence and hopefully bringing to the viewer the same joy that I experience painting them. "
