"Why do you paint wildlife and landscapes, is something I am often asked. My response, It's my passion and goal to have people see the importance of these creatures. We forget that we share the world with them. We are caught up in our chaotic lives, worrying about our own days and lives. What if these creatures were gone? The world would not be the same. It would be boring and the ecosystem would suffer greatly. They possess beauty that we can not fathom, the places they call home are places we dream of. We are the cause of nature's destruction, we are the only ones that can change that. My way is by making people see the importance through these places and creatures through my eyes. Arming yourself with knowledge is the best way to get your voice heard, and seeing the topic you are passionate about makes you even more powerful. That is why I create these wonderful places and creatures."
