About the Artist

A Signature Member of both Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation, I’m actually a portrait artist. I highlight individual non-human animals who have the right to life and freedom from harm.​I was a graphic designer in New York City, a student of Disney artists in Los Angeles, and a teacher of art to mildly interested middle schoolers in Colorado. But it was as head of graphic design at the Dallas Zoo, and the distress I felt for captive animals, that led me down my current path.​Awards include SAA's Medal of Excellence, David Shepherd's Wildlife Artist of the Year - 'Vanishing Fast' category, Artists Magazine's International Competition - 2nd Place Animals/Wildlife, and Art Hop's Best of Show. My work has been exhibited at the San Diego Museum of History, England's Nature in Art Museum, and many points in between.​I also keep a studio above the Georgetown Art Center, and my southwestern animals are represented by Worrell Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Artist Statement

We’ve lost our connection to other species, endangering and exploiting sentient individuals in the process. This imperils not only them, but also us. In the words of Dr. Jane Goodall regarding our most recent pandemic, “It is (due to) our disregard for nature and our disrespect of animals.”There may be no better way to convey that other animals have the right to life and freedom from harm than by focusing on species closest to our own - non-human great apes. Every one has a story, whether used for experimentation, food or entertainment, victimized by an illegal pet trade, or facing increasing perils in the wild. Their stories are inextricably linked with our own, and like ours, are filled with both loss and hope.
