I've enjoyed painting, drawing and exploring the Great Outdoors all of my life. I can work in a variety of traditional media, from oils and acrylics to watercolor, charcoal, pen and ink, or more. If I'm not outdoors you're likely to find me on the computer, using Photoshop, Painter, or perhaps editing some video I just shot. I greatly enjoy the challenge of drawing stylized, yet believable, people and animals with plenty of expression and personality. In any artwork I do, I attempt to portray anatomical accuracy, emotion, and that indelible quality that gives artwork "life". I love exploring big cities and seeing all the people, art and cultural experiences one can find there, and some of that is reflected in my second book, "Drawing Manga Animals, Chibis and Other Adorable Creatures". However, I'm well known for my love of the outdoors, and years of first-hand experience with wildlife and nature helped me as I created my first how-to-draw book, "Drawing Wildlife", published by Watson-Guptill in February 2005. What an amazing journey both books have been! I've also had a lot of support from my family and friends, making it all possible- thank you!

An important part of wildlife art is going out in the field and making sketches from life. Here are some of those sketches as well as studies of found dead animals.
It can be fun and educational to draw other people's characters, experimenting with different styles and looks.
