About the Artist
I create vibrant and expressive animal portraits using acrylic paints, pastels, and colored pencils. I use bright rainbow colors and bold brush strokes to create energy and movement in my artwork. As a former veterinary technician, I have always had a deep love and appreciation for animals and the natural world. I distill my passion into each painting I create, allowing the individual personality and spirit of each animal to shine through.
I have historically used many different styles in my artwork. My current styles is described as “colorful realism”, where the anatomy and proportions of the animal are true to life, but the colors are highly saturated and vibrant. Other styles of my artwork are a stylized psychedelic style, and true realism. Art style influences include contemporary and classical art in the styles of realism, fauvism, impressionism, post-impressionism, modern art, psychedelic art, and expressionism.
My primary inspirations come from animals and nature, as well as Celtic and Asian designs and visionary art. I prefer to work in bright, vibrant full-saturation color, although I do occasionally use natural earth tones for realistic art. My vivid multicolor artwork, usually depicting animals and fantasy creatures, is the most popular of my styles. I love incorporating bold geometric shapes and spirals as well. My newest artwork can be found in the various galleries on my site, which can be accessed from the main page as well as from a drop down menu at the top of every page.

I always want to do something unique and stand out as an artist. My reason for creating art is simply that I love to do it, it makes me happy. My bright bold colors bring joy to those that experience my art, and that gives me a sense of fulfillment. I have been drawing for as long as I could hold a pencil, but I only started creating art more seriously since 2007. It has been a learning process, both with the actual creation of the art, and my online presence with the design of my website and use of other online tools such as galleries, stores and social media.
