All my life I have loved nature and
art. The result: that for years I have traveled and worked as
a field biologist. This has become an integral part of my art
work: seeing the wildlife, birds in particular, that I paint and
draw. The basis of almost all my work is observation and field
sketching, combined occasionally with museum specimens; in particular
for the field guide plates that I paint. The knowledge of how
animals move in nature helps me capture an animal's essence and
I hope makes it come to life in a two dimensional medium.
