ABOUT

Domestic pets, wildlife, and nature have always fascinated me. When I was young, my mother would take me to the library and I would run to the animal section to find picture books to use as references for my drawings. The images inspired my creativity in a profound way.
 

After a long absence from art, I began experimenting with pastels in 2010. Pastels felt wonderfully natural to me, given my love for drawing, and over time I became obsessed with the medium. Painting a lifelike representation of an animal in pastels is exhausting, but the end result of this labour-intensive process makes it all worthwhile.
 

I strive to never become complacent with my art, and experimentation is a big part of my process.  My greatest artistic goal is simple: paint God's beauty in all things. St. Mother Theresa said it best... “I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.”
