erh-headMy mission is to use art as a way to educate and inspire people a bout wildlife and conservation.

The goal is twofold: Display the beauty in each and every animal I paint and to educate the viewer on the animals and its conservation needs. Every oil painting is done from reference material and photos. With each work I research the animal and its habitat to make sure the painting is realistic.
The final artwork is displayed with fun facts on the animal and also the threats that it faces. With the paintings and information I want to have viewers learn how many remarkable animals live with us. Through my work I hope to inspire others to take a growing interest in the world’s wildlife. Only with education can others take an interest in conservation and I help people take that first step by teaching them how beautiful and diverse this world’s inhabitants are and how much danger they are in of being lost forever.
