2019/2020 FELLOW

We've lost our connection to other species, endangering magnificent beings in the process. Through each portrait, I connect people to an individual non-human animal - it is surely as individuals that they see themselves.

Every one has a story, whether used for experimentation, food or entertainment, living captive in a zoo, or facing increasing perils in the wild. Their stories are inextricably linked with our own, and like ours, are filled with both loss and hope.

A Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists, I was once a graphic designer in New York City, a student of Disney artists in Los Angeles, and a teacher of art to mildly interested middle schoolers in Colorado. But it is as the former head of graphic design at the Dallas Zoo and Children’s Aquarium, and the discomfort I felt in that environment, that led me down my current path as an animal artist and activist.

I've won numerous awards, including SAA's hard-fought Medal of Excellence. My work has been exhibited at the San Diego Museum of History, London's Mall Galleries, and many points in between.

After every sale, I donate to animal charities, so clients know that a portion of their money goes towards a good cause when purchasing a piece of my art.
