A young orangutan searching for his mother. As long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated and inspired by the beauty of nature. This led me to my career of capturing these beautiful scenes and creatures and presenting them to others. I work in several different painting media including acrylic, gouache, but transparent watercolors are my favorite.
My art is inspired by the paintings of Carl Brenders and Robert Bateman.
My mission is to immortalize the animals I have known by portraying their likenesses as realistically as possible while capturing their individual personalities. I do this in order to enable others to get to know these animals and enjoy them as I have.
I also hope to inspire others to treat these magnificent creatures with the dignity and respect they deserve, and to work to preserve them for future generations to enjoy.
