GREAT THINGS START FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

I’m a self-taught wildlife artist who was born and raised in Port Perry, Ontario.  Having moved to Muskoka in November 2018, I now live in Port Carling, Ontario, where I create from my home studio.

I began drawing in pen and ink when I was just a young boy, etching what was most certainly the beginnings of future paintings into the pages of my school notebooks (much to the chagrin I’m sure of many of my teachers as I was, no doubt, supposed to be taking notes on the “lesson of the day”. It wasn’t until my late 20’s though that I began to approach painting seriously. It’s hard to believe it’s almost 30 years later!

I’ve been an avid supporter of nature and wildlife conservation throughout my career — over the years raising tens of thousands of dollars for various organizations and causes through donated paintings and sponsored print sales. My paintings have been displayed internationally at many prestigious exhibitions, including the Society of Animal Artists Annual Exhibition, the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, the Artists for Conservation Annual Art Festival, and the McMichael Autumn Art Show.

My new retail gallery called “Heart of Nature Gallery” opens in June 2019 and will feature both my original paintings and limited edition prints.

Always Searching For Inspiration

As a wildlife artist, there’s always something on my wildlife research trip wish list. So, when I’m not in my studio painting, I’m either travelling the globe gathering first-hand research of all species of wildlife in their natural habitat or I’m planning the next excursion! I have been very privileged so far to witness some amazing creatures and beautiful landscapes in South Africa, Botswana, Alaska, British Columbia, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories, Colombia, St. Lucia, Costa Rica, Yellowstone National Park, Hudson’s Bay and the infamous Pantanal jungle in Brazil.

I’ve been painting for over 25 years.
I love the outdoors, especially fishing, back country camping and hiking.
Fur is one of my favourite things to paint.
I gather inspiration from travelling the world researching wildlife in their natural habitat.

“Only when the last of the animals horns, tusks, skin and bones have been sold, will mankind realize that money can never buy back our wildlife.”
