One thing I’ve learned over the years is that, for the sake of honesty in my art, I should paint from what I have lived. Animals are what I know, and so they have become the focal point in most of my paintings. There are plenty of wildlife artists out there; but my experience with animals has been of those tamed by humans, and once tamed, dependent on them. There is a beauty that radiates from a painting when it strikes an element of truth, and that beauty is what I am after. I believe I am a storyteller at heart, and the story behind a painting is more important to me than any technical quality like texture, temperature or balance. To me, those things are simply the vocabulary from which I built my narratives.
