About The Artwork

I haven’t shown my animal paintings as much as other works (mostly landscapes and abstracts). Somehow they feel more personal to me and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to part with them. I’ve sold a few, but not many, and mostly to friends. I never really felt this way about selling my other paintings, with the landscapes and abstract works I just kind of accepted the fact that I can’t keep them and I’d rather have them out in the world. Plus, as an artist, it doesn’t make sense to horde my own work. Some how the animals feel different, but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I do want them out in the world. I’d say they’re allegorical, although I’m not entirely certain of the story or meaning behind them. A couple of years ago we had a family of raccoons that would come in to the house through the cat door and help themselves to the cat food. They were never destructive and didn't linger. They would simply come in, eat and leave. They were the inspiration for this painting.

​I was born in Oxford, England and grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. I attended Skidmore College (1988-1992) and The Cleveland Institute of Art (1996-1998). I have always considered myself an artist and had my first gallery show in 1995. I'm fortunate to have my work in numerous collections across the country and I’ve had gallery representation in Ohio, New York and California.
