Artists of the mid 1800-1900's like Thomas Moran & Carl Rungius have greatly inspired my approach to painting. They made extraordinary contributions to the artistic interpretation and preservation of wildlife and its habitat. Through their work, they proved that artists have the power to directly influence a conservation mentality through appreciation for nature.
It is my heart's desire to do the same. By bringing the animals I know & paint to new audiences, I hope to awaken a deeper sense of compassion & concern for all living creatures. Aligning with AFC to help achieve this is both an honor & a manifestation of this dream, raising not only awareness, but much needed funding for conservation groups all over the world!
