Animals have always been dear to my heart, and at any opportunity I will use my art as a means of raising awareness of wildlife conservation. I am so grateful that as a part of my journey I have had the opportunity to travel to a national park in the deep jungles of Borneo to witness orangutans in the wild. It's experiences like this that inspire me to show that the eyes of an animal are no different to ours; that they feel emotions, are a part of loving families and are sentient beings just as we are.
"My artwork celebrates the beauty and connection of all living things. I feel so blessed to express myself through my wildlife art, with an opportunity to reach others through the beauty and innocence that shine from an animal’s eyes Before I start a piece the eyes are what I notice first. They mesmerize me. These beautiful creatures are calling me to express that they are not just mere commodities; to be exploited, used or forgotten. My style of art is quite realistic with great attention to detail. I create this way to draw the viewer in, encouraging them to take a closer look at each of my subjects - to see their individuality and unique personality. "
