First Prize Winner * "The Lookouts"
When you were a child, what did you want to do when you grew up? For me, the dream of being an artist has been unwavering, blossoming and growing ever since my little hands could use a crayon. I create art because I can, and because I love it more than anything else, and because of the indescribable joy of the moment when a piece that I created I resonates with someone else, and becomes something that they treasure for the rest of their life.

For most of my life, I have lived in the town of Wilton, California, a rural area south of Sacramento. I was raised on a farm and have always had a passion for nature and birdwatching. The animals that surround and inhabit my life have a strong influence on the artwork that I create. I aim not only to portray my subject matter as realistically and accurately as possible, but also to capture the expression and soul of an animal.
