My first brush to canvas that was noticed by others began in six grade and resulted in an honorable mention gold key award that year. This was the start of a life long endeavor to recreate nature’s beauty. I am a self taught artist but owe a great deal of my development to the inspiration provided by other great artists that I admired. Most of my work is a combination of field trips with a camera and my memory of nature’s beauty. My wife and I started a business called Reflections in Wildlife 8 years ago. This was due to our love for wildlife and eagerness to share it with others. This has enabled me to pursue a career in wildlife art.
