Realistic Animal Art Portfolio

I specialize in realistic, fine art treasures, portraits, wildlife art, and fantasy art, Celtic knotwork, and abstract minimalist art.  My primary mediums include colored pencil, ink, and oil paint.  Examples of my past work are displayed in these galleries.  I am no longer selling art or taking commissions due to health problems.

My animal art evolved out of a deep desire to convey far more than just a pretty drawing of an animal.  Through deep contrasts in lighting, dramatic eyes, intense detail, void space, and partially-hidden forms, I seek to give the viewer pause, to stop and think, and gain a glimpse into the spirit or soul of the subject.  They are more than just pretty drawings, they are windows into beings other than ourselves, our brothers and sisters on this Earth.

  1. Heya,

    I just wanted to drop a comment in and say that your art is looking simply fantastic! It’s come a hell of long way since the JC with the lounge rats. ;)

    Allen.

    • It has come a long way since then, hasn’t it? Most things about me have changed since then, even the name I use. It seems like forever, but then it’s been almost 20 years. I’m glad we’ve kept in touch, however distant. You are the one and only person I can think of from that time in my life I am still in contact with. Life moves in strange ways. :)
