About My Shop and My Process

I don’t think that art should just be reserved for museum walls, too expensive or obtuse to be enjoyed broadly. I think art should also grace the walls of a child’s room or a couple’s living room, and bring a chuckle, a smile, or a contemplation to everyday life.

ORIG ANIMAL PORTRAIT
Each animal has its own foibles and charms. The Grizzly Bear is on a picnic confounded by ants devouring her jam; the Polar Bear is proudly wearing his "March for Science" pin, standing up for the of our world. My ongoing series of animals are anthropomorphically presented as if they were portraits of kith and kin. The subject dominates the composition leaving little negative space; an approach that emphasizes the subject and reveals small painted details symbolic of the animal's life, such as a brooch or motif. My style is largely influenced by the rich detail, flat surfaces, and bright and pure coloring of Persian Miniature painting, as well as by realism and detail from Germanic Renaissance portraiture. 

ANIMAL PORTRAIT PRINTS
The animal prints in my shop are museum quality reproductions of my original gouache paintings, designed by me to be accessible, fun and affordable works of art. The animals are printed using archival ink on archival watercolor paper, and the quality is so high that many people, including my professional artist friends, cannot tell the difference between the original painting and print!
