"I feel that animals are an extremely important part of our existence and should be treasured and celebrated by us as human beings. That is what I attempt to do through my art. I think a quote by Albert Einstein put it best . . ."Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."  "

I am working towards conservation of the animals I respect and treasure, as well as conservation of our land and environment, in what may seem many small ways to others. I want to make differences on a small scale such as teaching children to respect animals and the world we live in from the time they are quite young. Hopefully they we carry it forward into adulthood with each small step expanding and reaching others as they speak about what they learn to others. Additionally, I try to assist local charitible organizations with gifts of time, my art or in other ways in order to see small seeds of conservation and protection grow in our own community and region.
