" I look for the natural things that are all around us, those out of the ordinary scenes where I can get in tune with the animals and atmosphere of an area and that motivates me to capture it on canvas.
It is these special places in nature that we so often forget to stop and admire from time to time but that reach so deeply into that special place in our hearts when we see them in a painting."
