"I remember being a very small child and feeling compelled to draw. I would look at
the animals and then into the animal to find its unique magic. Why was I looking at that
one specific animal. In each of my paintings I am trying to touch the soul of the creature."
My pet & livestock portraits are worked from one or more original photographs that
can either be supplied by the client or can be arranged by the artist. My paintings are
built up in several stages and a single canvas can take around two or three months to complete.
All commissions must allow for this. Though based on photographs, my work is a celebration
of the subject's energy and takes flight in the spirit of the creatures I paint. My handling
of the materials used gives depth and vitality to my work.
