I have a background in graphic design, which has helped my sense of composition, an important part of all my paintings. In graphic design/lithography I was constrained in my use of color. Painting the tropics set me free creatively. I like to work big. I rarely work smaller than 18 x 24 inches, and most of my paintings are on 22 x 30-inch, 300-pound watercolor paper.
I’m committed to nature education and conservation, which is why I donate a portion of my profits to wildlife and reef preservation projects. I hope that my artwork will both decorate and promote an appreciation of the amazing variety and fragility of the biosystems I paint. The majority of species represented here are indigenous to the West Indies, many of them endangered.
