About the Artist
I am a self taught artist living in Florida with my rescue animals, at present totaling 13 cats, 2 dogs and 2 parrots.
I basically consider myself a wildlife/animal artist excelling in realistic animal paintings, capturing the heart and soul of the animal in their wonderful expressions. I also paint landscapes, abstracts and florals.
Being very concerned with nature and the protection of wildlife, animal rescue and preservation of natural habitat, some of the proceeds from the sales of my work are donated to such organizations.
I am a juried member of EBSQ+ and have had paintings used on calendars, sold paintings in the USA and Europe.
