My work is an exploration of the interior and emotional life of animals. By creating an atmosphere of classically dramatic light and space to illuminate my subjects’ individuality and emotions, I offer the viewer the opportunity to recognize these animals as ‘some-one' not as 'some-thing'.
These emotive portraits bring together my love for both painting and photography, a natural outgrowth of my early training as painter and more than twenty years as a designer and photographer. Through innovative digital techniques I create images that reflect the way my mind and heart understand the scene more fully than with photography alone.
My work begins with the literal photograph. I then ‘digitally paint’ into it using a series of transparent overlays and digital brushwork to create an image with an emotional impact more real than the reality of a photographic recording.
