Artist's Statement   My work is a nostalgicniew of a world that, even in my early childhood, was still substantially unspoiled and is something by way of an homage to 17th and 18th Century animal and bird painters, ie., Desportes, Bogdani, Oudry and Barraband. These artist have always fascinated me with their extraordinary, if sometimes bizarre arrangements of disparate creatures. My aim is to recapture that almost naive delight when encountering an unfamiliar species.
