I enjoy the challenge of painting the beautiful, elegant leopard. Good fortune during my travels has given me the privilege of observing these wild, elusive cats many times in various settings and behaviors.
The inspiration for several paintings, including "Always Aware," is based on both direct and indirect leopard encounters.

One of the most incredible places I have ever witnessed is the remote, pristine rainforest around Mahale, Tanzania. Our castaway-style camp sits on the white sandy beach of Lake Tanganyika, the longest lake in Africa.

At our semi-open two-story thatched-roofed banda (hut) entrance, the camp staff places a large water basin to wash off the sand from bare feet.
One morning at first light, we noticed large cat tracks leading up to the water basin in the sand. We conclude the paw prints must be a leopard and ask our guide. "Yes, leopard tracks," the guide confirms.

Imagine a leopard drinking from the basin, only yards away from where we were sleeping. Then imagine a leopard slipping silently, unseen across a white sand beach, returning to the verdant jungle under a starry night sky.

    Transform your space with the power and beauty of Art

    Through my art I strive to capture a "moment in time" allowing us to take a journey in our minds each time we view it. Traveling the world to observe wild animals in their natural habitat I hope to gain a deeper insight into the trials of "living on the edge” and to bring a sense of life to every canvas.
