Artist's StatementWhile I work in many different styles and mediums, my art always revolves around animals. In my more abstract work, I have explored the associations and symbolism surrounding the wolf. At the other end of the spectrum, I use my naturalistic style to capture an animal's unique personality in my pet portraits. If you would like to commission a portrait of your pet, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to further discuss your requirements.
