An artist inspired by nature, wildlife is my favorite subject to paint and draw, dedicated to capture the beauty of animals. I love action with my subjects, horses running with wind in their manes or big cats on the prowl and lots of expression. Also People and Pet Portraits are fun to draw and paint as they bring joy to the recipient

My favorite mediums are graphite pencil, charcoal and watercolor with colored pencil on tonal papers the news medium added to my resume. Exploring drawing on different papers has added new dimensions, always a quest for artist as myself.

I have had a love affair with animals since a small child, walking my neighbor's dogs and walking to the Sunset stables as horses have always been close to my heart. To capture my subjects facial expressions and reach into those eyes, the soul of all living things is what I strive for. Now drawing people and adding humans to animal portraits is my new adventure in art.

I was raised in Los Angeles, drawing horses and dogs from about the age of five. I studied art and design in college and was a commercial artist for fifteen years. My favorite vacation places are the National parks; they are places to be close to nature. For nine years, I lived in the Pacific Northwest close to the habitat of many of these beautiful creatures. I recently moved back to Los Angeles where I can finally be a full time artist and this is my passion. My philosophy is "life is getting short enjoy your passions!"
