I create intimate, intense animal portraiture that interprets a pet’s sense of dignity and their unique personality of joy, desire, or even sorrow, so that each furry individual can be celebrated and cherished, both in the moment, and for life. My imagery celebrates a special presence, an inner spark that connects to ours. I hope my art brings joy to animal lovers and inspires others to learn about and protect our precious friends. Portraying these personalities is a passion for me, a deep kind of intimacy.Â My sense of time, age and gender seem to disappear when I am at my easel. What emerges from my canvases are vibrant interpretations and translations in oil, designed to touch a person’s heart. Â These paintings are windows into the furriest souls as I see them, tangible, yet magical salutes to the animal-human emotional connection. I fall in love with every animal I paint.
