"Being able to give back to the natural world is not only my honor as a wildlife artist, but also my responsibility.   Educating and creating awareness of the fragility of wildlife and the environments they inhabit are my goals as a wildlife artist. "

I have been working with zoos across the country, donating art pieces for their fundraising events in an effort to support their many conservation projects.  The Lowery Park Zoo in Tampa, FL.,: The San Antonio Zoo in TX,: The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, WA.:  Zoo Miami in FL; and the National Zoo in Washinton DC are just some of the many zoos that have bennefited from my donations of art.  I feel blessed that with my association with the AFC, making donations to many wildlife conservation organizations has just become easier!!!   I want to make sure there will be much wildlife for future artists to continue to paint, support and enjoy!!
