Stillness (Great Blue Heron)
Not For Sale
"I back onto a body of water where I can watch Heron fishing stepping carefully around the beautiful lily pads. I always marvel at the patience the Heron has as he waits quite still so as not to disturb the fish and he waits for one to come close enough to him. It’s stillness reminds me of a yoga master, or the fluid movements of Tai Chi.
I am always captivated by their look as they stand motionless waiting patiently for fish to approach them. They look almost meditative as they stand in perfect “Stillness”.

My journey as a Wildlife Artist is one of constant learning. Choosing subjects, learning about their struggles as a species, developing ideas for how best to paint them are ongoing for every painting - bringing that image out in paint is an absolute joy and so rewarding.
"“One of the strengths of wildlife art is its ability to tell stories. In my paintings I try to bring out the individuality of each animal as it goes about its everyday life - I use my brush to tell their stories.""
