Welcome to my wildlife art website!
If you’re an art collector, art lover, or artist, I look forward to connecting with you here.
I’ve been an artist since the early 1990’s when I discovered art by accident and since then I’ve been passionately creating new work each year.
Early in my art career, I started with a passion for abstract expression, and modern art, since then I’ve fallen in love with wildlife art, after creating a few paintings for my children and I found that I enjoyed that style of art.
As my children have grown and my family has moved multiple times, I’ve continued creating new wildlife art but I’ve never shared it in one place until now.
On this website, I will share my latest artwork, paintings, drawings, and writing since I’m also a writer with a passion for sci-fi.
About My Wildlife Art
My work has never been classified as any particular style although I would describe it as modern since I have a passion for color and design.
Some of my favorite artists are old masters like Picasso, Warhol, Braque, Matisse, Cezanne, and Hockney.
My favorite wildlife artist is Wyland, the Laguna Beach artist who is well-known for his whale murals around the world.
Since I work full time, I don’t get unlimited hours each day to create new work but I often get in quick ‘ninja sessions’ that make it possible for me to create new work, usually in oil pastel or acrylic paint.
Since I have children I’ll create new work with whatever that’s nearby including crayons and watercolors because I would rather spend my time creating than trying to clean a workspace to create new work.
What Motivates Me To Create?
It would have been easy for me to give up on my art when I was in my 20’s when life got busy, but I continued with it for one main reason, I can’t go one day without wanting to create new artwork and if I’m not working on art, I’m thinking about.
That passion for creating art has carried me through many ups and downs of life and as I grow older, I realize what Picasso said about leaving his body outside the studio because when I create, I reconnect with that same passion that I had at 17 and I can easily work on my art for hours.
Some of the other things that help motivate me are a beautiful day, I moved to Missouri about 2 years ago and am surrounded by nature. Besides that, I’m also motivated by great music, good movies, and road trips with my family.
My artwork has been described as childlike and fun; I take that as the highest compliment because I’m thankful I can still connect with the same creativity I had as a kid.
I invite you to check out the art on my site, add a new piece to your collection and reach out to me so that we can talk about art!
Have a great day!
