I’ve had a life long
empathy for and appreciation of animals.
Most wildlife have no
voice about what happens to them.
They’re innocent victims of mankind’s needs and caprices. The natural
world is so full of spirituality that is created by a force or forces beyond
our own. I believe that humans must be the stewards of those innocent beings
and share our finite world with them. Conservation is not just a sentimental
thought, but has proven to be a valuable tool in the continued sustainability
of human life on this planet.
It has been said that
people won’t strive to save or fight for things we don’t love. My focus on
wildlife art is borne by a hope that the dignity and value of wildlife will
emerge in the conscious and subconscious minds of people who see my work. If the
creatures in the forests inspire me to replicate their images, maybe the images
will move other people to care about protecting their lives and habitat for our
All animals are as important in our continued ability to live on Earth as all the planning we do for ourselves.
