I will never tire of the complexity found in portraying the animal subject. I am enthralled by the polarity of nature, the predator and the prey, wild creatures and their domestic decedents. My art is created in an attempt to remind others of the animals with whom we share this planet. I am not interested in representing a true, photographic resemblance; I am interested in capturing the essence of a given subject. I strive for my work to have eyes that speak to the viewer, portray an emotion, and tell a story.

As someone who is passionate about wildlife and creating artworks on the topic, I must take into consideration the fragility associated with generating works centered on a living being, who possesses no means of vocalizing an opinion on their depiction. As an artist, my responsibility to the animals lies in research. I believe the themes I explore, in regards to wildlife, are centered in respect - not making the animal into more or less of what it is. The creature in itself is enough.
