As long as I can remember I have had a keen interest in animals and art. Drawing, tracing and cutting out pictures was an important pastime when I was young, and as the years past my interest grew and finally evolved into the arts practice I have today. Describing my work is easy it’s always been traditional realism and the natural world. For me the animal kingdom is the driving force behind my art as I love to delve into the diversity of animal life. My intention is to capture my subject’s character and expression, incorporating their humour, their majesty and wonder, and as a result, the painting then tells its own story.
