The first 40 years of my career has been as an art teacher. I will dedicate the rest of my days in retirement to being an artist. I live in a beautiful lake town in Northern Idaho where inspiration surrounds me. This first sketchbook was not going to be about Ravens at all, but they are familiar friends in my life and they seemed to convince me that they will once again be the subjects. I have a deep passion for nature and animals and they appear often in my work. It is the Raven that seems to surface again and again because of the raucous appearance he makes in trees and parks when I am out and about gathering my thoughts. Because Ravens are often misunderstood and not appreciated for their intelligence and wit, I choose Raven as the ambassador for all creatures in hopes that people everywhere will take the time to appreciate the connections we have with all other living things.
