I love animals, birds and just about all creatures....always have, always will. It is just in me.
Each living soul that I have had the privilege to capture in a photograph, has its own unique personality and character. The eyes tell the story of all animals and birds. When I paint, I can capture personality by correctly portraying the eyes, when I take photographs I strive for the same. I see joy, love, fear, curiosity, happiness, protectiveness, bossiness and 'whatever' in all species.
In my paintings, I use alcohol inks (and incorporating some acrylic ink) on a variety of surfaces, tile, canvas, gesso panels, metal and Yupo paper. I love the bright intense colors that the ink provides and the surprises I get while attempting to control the ink that floats on top of my painting surface! My paintings are whimsical & fun but some but realistic. I hope you enjoy!
I am a dedicated animal lover and protector....I respectfully take images of wild animals and birds only. So please enjoy these cruelty free photos!
