About the Artist - Artist Statement

I have painted everything I can think of topside for over 30 years and have become captivated with the extraordinary beauty of the underwater realm. For me, working en plein eau is the ultimate artistic challenge and I feel a responsibility to help preserve this beauty for posterity.

Our water everywhere is in trouble due to over fishing, pollution and climate change. We take this precious resource for granted and don't give much thought to the creatures and habitat that live beneath the waves. Just because we can't see what is underwater doesn't mean it isn't there. By devoting myself to painting this amazingly vibrant world, I hope to help promote the safe keeping of this liquid biodiversity that helps sustain our very lives.
