About the Artwork

"The waning days of summer and a bounty of ripe fruit in cherry trees have lured these hungry bears searching for high-calorie foods ahead of winter.
Fruit trees provide a high food reward for bears preparing to hibernate and they tend to come back repeatedly, leading to problems. People who leave the fruit on the trees stand a good chance of the bears damaging the trees while they climb them in search of a meal.
It was quite a time ago that I watched these bears, and was amazed how quickly they were able to climb up the tree to get their forbidden reward. "

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.""
