This site is a place to share my images and art.

Africa is the continent that has sparked my imagination since I was a young boy.  When I paint, Africa is inspiration, Africa is my muse. Some of my paintings are a reflection of African wildlife. Others are of cultural influences as seen through the lens of my travels.

 Africa's many nations and peoples offer an breadth of opportunities for the artist to explore. I have visited Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Rwanda, Togo, and Uganda . The people, the cultures, the history and the wildlife of these countries have supplied me with a lifetime of inspiration. I yearn to see places not yet visited as well as returning to the places that have become part of who I am.

All of the photography displayed on this site were shot by me on my various adventures in Africa.

My collection of traditional African art is now part of the images gallery.

Please contact me by email for any purchasing inquires. All payments are now done by PayPal.
