Promoting the Spirituality of Animals and nature Welcome to my world of red gold hues in Australia. This is such a wonderful country full of so much diversity in both the landscape, the flora and fauna and in the humans that live here. Please look through and enjoy some of the work I have done. I hope you enjoy your stay. Animals are my main subject and I hope to be able to communicate intelligence and spirituality that I feel from them. It is so important in my art that a connection is made with the viewer and maybe some compassion for the creature will be kindled in the unfamiliar heart.
