My passion is to create images that convey the intensity and spirit of the wild and to inspire the viewer to preserve all that is natural, wild and free. I want my paintings not only to tell a story, but mostly create something visual. I prefer painting abstract backgrounds so there is more room for imagination. The colors are enough to set the mood and details are not necessary in my opinion to lead on to a story. They would get in the way and limit the subject to just that one background he is painted in.The viewer is now in an emotional state and can make up his own mind on where the subject is. I paint wild animals but have the greatest admiration for the wolf because to me it represents the symbol of a wild world. Wolf has forever been misunderstood and managed to survive even though it was hunted, poached and killed throughout the northern hemisphere.
