When I look at my work I cannot help but see an extension of myself. It is in many ways the story of my life. There is always a connection to someone I know or something I love. Art is not just my passion but becomes an outlet for me to document visually what I am passionate about.
It is very important to me that I am accurate in details so that I can create lifelike images, but I also try to capture something in my subjects that is unexpected. Something that personifies the animal in a way that we can relate to on a different level. I seek to engage my viewers emotions and pull them into a fond emotion or memory. It is always my hope that they will look at it and find the same passion that I too have felt in creating the piece.
