About the Artist
Iíve always felt a special affinity with animals. When I was gifted with a camera, it opened a new artistic avenue to capture the special beauty, personality and the spirit of each animal. I now work in pencil, oil, acrylic and photography.
As a horse trainer also, I have intimately studied the behavior of horses. My greatest joy is to portray the individual animalís personality, either with horses, pets or wildlife. While creating a portrait I sometimes remove, soften or add a background to keep the focus on the most important elements. Other times, often with wildlife, I want to show the animalís relationship with his/her environment. Realism, as well as the creative abilities of the photography process lets me infuse the images with the emotion I feel when in the presence of a horse.
