Art is what I do. Always have, always will.
I have been drawing as long as I can remember.
The first drawing I can remember is of a Chestnut horse running
against a blue sky.
I never had to decide what I was going to do.
I was drawn to the simple beauty of the natural world.
Drawn to its elusive quality.
It's a beautiful day.
By illuminating the uniqueness, the individuality of our natural world,
I intend to help preserve Earth's living creatures and our environment.
I want to bring back vanishing shapes.
When people sit and look at my work I'd like them to take some time
to enjoy a positive response. Support conservation.
Experience a quiet calm. Celebrate creatures.
