there will be an exhibition of the 'wee ones' and some other new paintings at MATRIX gallery in Blacksburg, Va for the month of August.

Animals seem to me to portray a joy of aliveness and a path to out hearts. I strive to bring that playfulness and wonder into my art by understanding the animal’s anatomy, and characteristics, and then revealing that through composition, gesture, and expressive color. This enables the personalities of my creatures to radiate their own special beauty.
