Wow. I’m in British Vogue Magazine.

This is HUGE!! VOGUE reached out to me for a feature on their Gallery Profile page in the October issue. I am ecstatic over this...to be noticed by such a high profile magazine such as VOGUE has truly exceeded my wildest expectations. WOW! My art is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m sure happy it’s...

My Birds up Close

People know my work best for my dramatic, large-scale paintings and murals of photorealistic birds. It's a passion that I have had since childhood. However, it would be wrong to consider me a naturalist or wildlife artist. When I do a painting of a bird, I am not aiming for realism. I am trying to capture not only their image but...

The Crow Takes Centre Stage

Wall art, public art, urban art or street art has evolved! It started as an underground movement linked to the hip-hop culture. At one time, it may have been called illegal art, graffiti art and even wall therapy. Now, it's international festivals in many major cities (Montreal, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Dallas, Lima, Buenos Aires and more), with artists who...

Painting the Emperor’s Son

In March 2015, I was commissioned to paint a work of art inspired by L’Aiglon (The Eaglet), an opera in five acts, set to Alexandrine verse by Edmond Rostand. The Opera paints a picture of Napoleon’s son, Napoléon François Charles Joseph Bonaparte, who was at birth proclaimed King of Rome. While he sought to free himself from the...

I use rare finds and eclectic troves from our collective past - toy dinosaurs and soldiers, collected shells from seaside family vacations and the silk flowers from grandma’s house. I use retro toys and...

My Wanderlust

In May 2011, I held my first solo exhibition entitled "WANDERLUST, our innate desire to wander, travel and explore the world". My WANDERLUST collection of birds and sculptures were meant to take people away. However, the stillness of the birds in the paintings is almost counterintuitive and asks us to take time for stillness. In an often demanding,...

En Masse, currently under the direction of Botkin and Rupert Bottenberg, was started in 2009 and has worked with over 250 international artists.

Have You Seen the Sky?

I love painting skies! If emotion could be painted it would be in the form of a sky. Someone once said that sky is a medium of revelation through which God shows himself to us. Do you remember as a child looking up at the clouds floating by and seeing each cloud as a bird or...
