I am a wildlife artist and photographer living in Central Pennsylvania. I work in watercolor and acrylic and I’m fascinated by anything furry, feathered or scaled. I am inspired by nature’s intricate details and attempt to convey them through my art and photography.
In today’s fast-paced world, we often overlook the wild creatures that live among us. As a wildlife artist, my challenge is to capture a fleeting moment in nature…that split second of wonder when you come into the presence of an animal in its natural environment.
My hope is that the awareness of the beauty revealed through my art and photography will remain with my audience, enticing them to slow down and observe their surroundings with fresh eyes. Until we truly see, we cannot fully understand the devastation that is occurring through loss of habitat and vanishing species. Seeing fosters thinking; thinking fosters action.
In today’s profit-driven society, we can no longer depend on the government to preserve natural habitat and protect the sanctity of our national parks. It is up to communities, corporations and individuals to embrace environmentally-sound practices, advocate ongoing protection of our threatened and endangered species and cultivate more wild spaces—whether on large tracts of land or in our own backyards.
I am a Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation, an Associate Member of American Women Artists and a member of the International Guild of Realism.
