A “woodsman” from an early age, I credit family walks in the forests for piquing my interest in the great outdoors from childhood on, hiking through woods and fields in search of wildlife, morels and blackberries. I still enjoy looking for the wildlife and blackberries, sometimes in my own backyard. There is always something to paint….
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Arts from Athens University. Combining these fields of learning made for an early interest in wildlife art, and I painted my first wildlife piece for a state game warden. Ducks, dogs, birds and bears, I love to paint them all. They are such a gift and a never ending source of beauty.
