at an early age that Florida was truly remarkable with all its
diversity, our state became the exclusive focal-point for my
work as a wildlife & scenic artist. My old house sits on
wooded acreage in Hernando County, but I consider all of Florida
to be my true home and my stomping ground.
a vivid imagination and a lifelong craving for adventure, my
original acrylic paintings are always based on experience and
imaginative ideas. I won’t paint something unless I have
experienced it in the wild; I never work paintings directly
from photographs, I work exclusively from my own creative designs.
My goal with my art has always been to achieve faultless realism
with fine detail, and then to manipulate that realism achieving
scenes that could never be captured with a camera. I hope that
my paintings provide others with a colorful and insightful look
at the relationships, the struggles, the reasoning and learning,
the dreams and the adventures that all wild creatures must experience.”
