The most exciting part of being a wildlife/nature artist is going out into the field to gather the reference and painting on locations. That means coming face to face with some of nature's most prized possessions - its wild creatures and landscapes. The mediums I work in are pastels, oils and acrylics. My paintings have been in various shows, galleries and several museums around the country as well as two national parks and have won numerous national and international awards. I have been published in several national and international magazines and newspapers. Past endeavors include illustrating two children's picture books. For me, it's all about getting out there, seeing, doing and sharing the experience!
