I use my personal experiences and travels in the United States and
around the world as inspiration for my photographs and paintings. I have
been all over the United States collecting information and observing wildlife
in order to create a sense of the beauty and freedom I find in nature.
The places that I have found the greatest inspiration include
Yellowstone National Park, Alaska, Italy, Kruger National Park
and Tshuksudu Game Reserve in South Africa. These adventures
in the wild, observing wildlife in its natural environment have
allowed me to capture rare moments in my artworks.
This brings me a deep sense of motivation and I wish to invite my
audiences to take these journeys along with me.
