"I paint wildlife and nature because I want to share the mystery
and unbelievable beauty of the natural world. Painting is how I pray for
and celebrate what I love.
"I paint with acrylics and use my own photos for reference. I have
traveled to many wild places to study and photograph the animals in their
natural habitat. I have scuba dived under a school of hammerhead sharks and
been charged by an elephant!
