“My work has evolved from primarily architectural portraiture to animal portraiture, primarily birds. Whatever the subject, I am striving to capture the essence of the place or sentient being. I don't rely on surrounding environment or absolute biologic accuracy. Rather, I try to share with you a conversation or an emotion that you can hear or feel within yourself.”
