"I love the wild areas and the real textures of planet earth and hope that my paintings will inspire people to preserve these wonderful places.  "

Each year I donate prints to the "Tioga County Sportsmen for Youth". This organization is a consortium made up of the PA Fish and Boat Commission, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Tioga County 4-H, and the PA Trappers Association. they run youth field days each summer to educate young teens in ecology,conservation, hunter safety, and boating safety. I have also donated prints to the Wildlands Conservancy of Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania,
The Tanglewood Nature Center of Elmira, NY, and The North American Bluebird society, of Miamiville, Ohio
