"Among my first memories as a young child are rescuing stray dogs and cats unthinking people would drop off by our country home, thinking they would somehow fend for themselves. Animals and the Natural world have always been a primary focus for me. My husband and I have visited remote areas of Western USA, Canada, Alaska and Africa to expand our knowledge of the local flora and fauna and gather reference material for my art. I remain committed to raising awareness to the plight of all animals so that we all can share this beautiful planet together as Nature intended. "

Of special interest to me are the wild Mustang of the American West, Cheetah, African elephants and the African Lion all of which are experiencing habitat loss. I pledge to donate at least 15% of my private art commissions to these causes,
