Artist Statement

My guiding light as an artist is expressing the power, movement and spirit of horses and other animals that we love. So many of us know the beauty and love shared by us and the animal kingdom. It is an emotional kinship. I find great joy in creating a painting where the life and energy can be seen and felt not just by me, but the viewer as well. In creating a piece I often combine engaging expressions in my subjects that evoke emotional curiosity along with dynamic energy, life and spirit circling within the composition. My paintings are first felt in my heart and are complete when the spirit of the piece arouse a feeling of intimate communication. My mission is to portray the equine or animal form accurately, combined with color, inspired originality, infused with living essence. I will continue to create paintings in oil with expressive brushwork, inspired by the vibrant animals that dance through my mind. I specialize in custom commissions.
