I am an artist, a painter. Most of my subjects are animals, although I love to paint just about anything that grabs my attention. A large part of what I do are custom paintings of people's pets. Contact me if you're interested in commissioning a pet painting, and I'll give you the information you need.
I have had many careers in my life and spent a huge part of my life in universities, both undergraduate and graduate - in psychology and neuroscience. Then one day, for many reasons, not just one, I walked away from it all and started my life as a professional artist. It's the best move I've ever made.
Fortunately - or maybe unfortunately - I had instant success and recognition with my artwork. It was a bit overwhelming, actually. In the beginning, I was a clay artist, sculpting really cute and funny dog, cat, and fish masks. Business was too good, and I burned out - big time. So I took a couple of years off, started learning to paint - and fell head-over-heels in love with painting, especially dogs, although I also paint cats, various farm animals, and lately landscapes.
I have -- finally!!! -- the best career of my life. I truly saved the best for last - although I expect 'last' is going to be for a long, long time. Since we all have to go at some time, I hope that I 'go' with paintbrush in hand, signing my new best and favorite painting.
