"The wildlife I render onto canvas does not arrive without its story. It has felt the majesty of eagle flight, the pride of a wild stallion, and the serenity of an orangutan nursing her infant. With each glide of my brush against canvas, sinew and spirit reveals itself until I feel the power, the strength and the vulnerability of these beings. I strive to share this emotional connection with the viewer so that they may linger, smile, perhaps frown – and always dream."
