I was raised in a suburb of St. Louis. Like many children I loved animals. At the age of 13, I started oil painting, although I work in watercolor, sculpting and other mediums, oil has remained my passion.

I have made my main focus the endangered species in the hope that my paintings will help raise awareness of the sad plight of those magnificent creatures.

I am ever grateful for the wonderful gift the Lord has given me. I hope that others will be moved and awestruck in my rendering of the endangered ones . . . just as I am each time I look into their eyes and raise up my brush!
