Artist  of  Wildlife  and  Nature


 . . I start with charcoal studies, creating many drawings of my subject as I slowly work up to an exciting composition. I then go on to painting using the glowing colors of pastels, watercolors, or other media.

My final concerns are to heighten the

drama of lights and darks,  and  to   add  a touch  of  accents  to  give sparkle and life to my creation.
