For lack of a better term, I sometimes call my painting style, 'Expressionistic Moomoo-ism', which is basically 'the joyous portrayal of cows and other creatures'. I am an animal painter as few things bring me more joy than animals.I use LOTS of paint, giving the work texture and interest. While painting I work spontaneously and with much energy and joy...and my sincere hope is that the viewer will share in at least some of this merriment. My personal philosophy in painting is: "make 'em laugh...or at least smile a bit". With all the stress in the world, I want to produce paintings that help bring a bit of cheer...if I can do that, then I'm most happy.As a young fellow I took courses in Animal Husbandry and was so often amazed at how much personality many of the animals had. They have fascinated me ever since, so it was natural to paint them once I ventured into an art career. I believe that animals can help make us more human by connecting us to the Divine, and I am honored to celebrate their wonder in some small way.I live in Gold Beach, Oregon, with my wife, professional artist J.M. Steele, our Corgi, Lily Bell, and our studio cat, Emily Rose.
