Artist's Statement

As an intuitive artist, my creative mission is to create compelling, detailed and dynamic drawings that deepen people's connection to animals as well as to inspire people to connect more with them.

I’ve loved animals my whole life and they have been a contributing factor to making me the person and artist that I am. I would like more people to be able to experience the connection that I have with animals.

As someone who loves to put a lot of detail in their art, I strive to portray all the little details that really can make a drawing come to life. However, I wish to take this further to really convey that animals have their own personality and soul.

Animals are such an integral part of many of our lives and even more so part of nature and our environment. Their voice needs heard just like ours. It is my hope that my artwork brings you a sense of this and that the art speaks to you like it does to me.
