About Me: My own dogs and cats have brought a great joy to my life and I share that joy through my artistic creations. I capture the spirit and emotion of each animal or pet through their eyes. For me the eyes tell it all. I look into the eyes trying to figure the animals inner soul. Every pair of eyes tells a story and my job, as an artist is to look beyond and find the heart and soul of each pet or animal.
Like many artists, it took a tragic event to spark my true creativity. This occurred in the summer of 2001 when my sister died. Having difficulties drawing human figures I turned my focus to my dogs, who gave me the unconditional love that I needed at the time. My three salukis became my inspiration as they still are. I had and continue to spend hours watching their antics. With the death of my sister I also inherited 2 cats. Not having been a cat lover, I quickly changed and learned the differences between canines and felines.
My motto is less can be more. Let the observer visualize their interpretation, thereby creating the image and story. I use many styles to accomplish this whether it is realism or abstraction.
