Background and Lifestyle
Interests and Personality
|Biography||My Interest In Apes and Wildlife Art started as a child watching Lowland Gorillas at the Los Angeles Zoo; this fascination grew into a passion for Apes and Monkeys that has lasted a life time. While living in San Diego in the early ninety's I took my passion for the greater Apes and Monkeys to the next level and began a three year artistic study of Lowland Gorilla individuals and their family's at the San Diego Zoo.
|Interests||The very word - GORILLA - holds me in awe: "Half man and half beast." Early 19Th century drawings usually depicted Gorillas looking more like King Kong Monsters. It is my desire to convey to the viewer of my artwork a thought best described by naturalist George B. Schaler of the Wildlife Conservation Society: No one looks into a Gorillas eyes- intelligent, gentle, vulnerable can remain unchanged. This is what I want to convey to my viewers the spirit of humanity in these animals. That I love.
|Heroes||Jesus Christ,Diane Fossey and Walt Disney
