Since my childhood in Venezuela I’ve had a fascination with animals. We had an outdoor life, very much in touch with the extraordinary animals and landscapes of the tropics, its bird and sea life, and the mountains of the Northern Andes. I’ve been making art my whole working life, in various different roles including as a concept artist, animator, illustrator and for the last 25 years as a wildlife and marine painter.

My love of marine-life started while scuba-diving in my 20’s and I’ve since painted many of the great mammals and fish in their environments in the US and the Caribbean.

Many of my major paintings have been privately commissioned by collectors across the world, on wildlife subjects reflecting their own passions for nature.
