I've had a kind of interesting life, so I'll tell you a little about it.
I was born in the US, although my family moved to New Zealand when I was 8. It was there that my passion & love for animals pretty much took hold. New Zealand was a fantastic place to grow up - especially since there are animals every where, for me paradise for sure! I've always drawn animals, however, it was in NZ that I started painting them.
I've been a full time professional pet portrait/animal artist for the past 25+ years. I moved to Scottsdale in the mid 1990's, where I've been living happily ever after.
