"I paint a lot of birds. I have been interested in them since I was a little boy. My Grandmother loved them and loved teaching me about them. My interest in them only grew stronger as I got older. I am very passionate about nature and animals...I also like to explore how animals resemble us as other animals and as a society. I have many questions to ask and I never want to stop painting."
