The outdoors and the creatures that live in it have always had a very strong attraction for me. So it was natural that early in my life as a young artist, I would begin to honor them in my art. And I continue to find their diversity an unending source of joy and inspiration as I move forward in my career.
I work in a variety of mediums, but my primary medium today is scratchboard. I find that this medium really lends itself to capturing the true feeling of the bodies and spirits of birds and animals. I love the workability of scratchboard and its ability to be successfully employed with or without color.
I am honored to be a Signature Member of the International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA) and to play a small role in promoting this wonderful form of art. I show my work in a variety of places, but the easiest way to see where I am currently is to visit my website at www.desertmorningstudios.com.
