Thank you for the DD for "Ghost of the North"!
I spent some time in a large enclosure with two captive male snowy owls- photographing and observing them. At first they were somewhat agitated by my presence and flew over my hunched form in a threatening way. After a while, when they realized I wasn't presenting any danger to them, the quietly took position in the furthest corner away from me, watching me with those magnificent yellow eyes. I sat there with a huge grin on my face, exhilarated by the experience. My most profound memory is of how quiet the owls were in flight- their wings hardly making any sound at all! With "Ghost of the North", I tried to capture that moment of silent flight with the wraith-like owl suspended in space.

Your artwork is wonderful. I just visited your webpage looking for prints - is that section down or is it just my browser? :)

So sorry, I stopped making reproductions of my paintings. The demand was low and some of my collectors prefer not to have their originals reproduced.
Thank you for your kind compliment. :-)

What a beautiful gallery! From reading your comments on some of the paintings, it seems you work with some of the animals directly? You do such a wonderful job of portraying their character and personality in your art :)

Thank you so much! I've had the great pleasure of working with quite a few of the animals I paint- most memorable being the big cats. My absolute favourites!
