I am an artist from Chester County, PA with a background in biological science, who works in oil paint. I am passionate about wild animals, including polar bears, birds and just about any living creature! Endangered and threatened animal species from around the world are facing survival challenges with loss of natural habitats. Warming temperatures and diminishing sea ice in the Arctic region is having a profound impact on the natural habitat of polar bears. Learning more about the life-threatening challenges of many of these magnificent species are facing today has inspired me to paint them. My wildlife paintings depict the exquisite beauty and strength of some of these magnificent creatures in their natural environments. I hope to raise awareness to the importance of conservation efforts.
