A Society of Animal Artists Signature Member, I work to capture the individual in my portraits of non-human animals.
I was a graphic designer in New York City, a student of Disney artists in Los Angeles, and a teacher of art to mildly interested middle schoolers in Colorado. But it as the former head of graphic design at the Dallas Zoo and Children’s Aquarium, and the discomfort I felt in that environment, that led me down my current artistic path.
I've won numerous awards, including a Society of Animal Artists Medal of Excellence. My work has been exhibited at the San Diego Museum of Natural History, The Houston Museum of Nature and Science, The Wildlife Experience in Colorado, Grouse Mountain Resort and Wildlife Refuge in Vancouver, the Hiram Blauvelt Wildlife Museum in New Jersey, Arizona's Sonoran Desert Museum, Miami's Art Basel, and the Nature in Art Museum in England among other venues.
