My personal work isn't so much about creating art or making a statement as it is an avenue to convey how thoroughly in awe I am of the natural world around me. I express that awe in richly detailed drawings and paintings of songbirds and treasures of the plant kingdom. Self-taught and committed to my continuing development as an artist, my technique evolves as I imagine ways to share the beauty and uniqueness of my landscapes, birds and botanical subjects.
I have lived in Western New York for more than half my life, and count Europe, the Midwest, the Desert Southwest and Texas as previous homes. In preparation for drawing and painting, I regularly walk, sketch and photograph the woods, meadows and waterways near my home. I live with my sweetheart, writer and teacher Rick Ohler, at Three Cat Farm where we happily work side by side on all of our creative endeavours. I teach at my studio on the historic Roycroft Campus, as well as on Patreon, and for NBC/Universal's Bluprint.com, THe Great Courses and at workshops near and far. I am also a Companion of the Guild of St. George, John Ruskin's guild that he created in 1871.
