Cats and other animals are what I love most, and come to me naturally as my subject matter. My whole life, I've enjoyed animal art; I was captivated by Louis Wain's anthropomorphic cat art and the Mainzer postcards as a child, and as I matured, Franz Marc became my favorite. Today, I'm proud to be carrying on the centuries-old tradition of cat and animal art in my own style.
A self-taught artist, I painted for many years while pursuing my archaeology career. Once I had small children at home, I had the crazy thought that perhaps I could sell my artwork on the internet; in 1999 that was a pretty far-fetched idea. I went ahead and built a website and amazingly, my paintings sold! Never went back... Over the years, I've added reproductions of my paintings in the form of small prints and notecards.
