Artist Statement
While growing up I was surrounded by dogs, cats and other small companions who inspired my love for animals. They never judged me and always gave me their unconditional love. I remember especially our dog Kane, a rottweiler, whose love for our family was the inspiration that lead me to specialize in animal portraiture. It is my way of paying him back for all the joy he brought to my life.

It’s a real pleasure to receive a call from another animal owner who wants to honor a living pet, or commemorate a beloved companion with a portrait that captures the essence of their personality.

My representational realistic style allows me to create a true reflection of their pet’s personality. Working with mostly pencil, charcoal, and oil paints, I strive to reproduce each play of light on the animal’s face, in it’s eyes, or on its coat until I have achieved a true likeness. My goal is to reflect the animal’s personality in a composition that gives it the respect and honor it deserves.
