"Animals inspire us with feelings of love, awe, even fear. How do they make you feel? What animal do you most relate to?"
(yes I'm a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine! It makes sense why I paint animals, doesn't it?)

Imagine having a piece of art on your wall, something that just spoke to you and brings you joy each time you look at it. Now imagine knowing that investing in that piece also helped save that animal and its habitat! And not only that but you now know more about the animal that you did before and can share that with your friends! That is my goal - to connect you with a piece that calls to you and in doing so support conservation efforts. In doing so you might also be inspired to give further support or discover more about animals and nature and even plan a trip to see them in the wild and feel what I feel! How amazing art can be!

I love to travel and learn and share my experiences! To hear, see, and yes, even smell animals in the wild and observe them is a thrill beyond all else for me. Through my art I can share these incredible experiences, teach people about the animals and why we need to help conservation for not only the beasts, but the people and land as well.

Animals have always been my passion since I was little. In kindergarten when I asked what I wanted to be when I grow up, I replied "a doctor or artist or work with animals"! The wisdom of a child!

Since developing my art, I have received many awards and distinctions and had many pieces published. What really resonates with me isn't these awards but hearing that people connect to my work and being told they can almost feel the texture of the fur and share the emotions of the animals. To see children get excited when looking at my paintings and hear them imitate the animals and jump up and down is tremendous! I bring you into the world of some remarkable creatures and get to relive my own experiences that brought me to those moments.

I am a proud member of the Artists for Conservation and pledge a portion of all profits to conservation groups. So come take a journey with me before these visions vanish forever! I believe if we work together we can make a difference for the better for the earth and all who live here!
