I have had a passion for other species, the natural world, and art, since I was old enough to hold a crayon and sit on a horse. They are the inspiration for my paintings, as I try to convey a message of compassion for all species. I am also an interspecies communicator since childhood. I was born to an Ojibwa-Cherokee, artist mother, and an adventurous English, father. I am a tribal member of the Ojibwe Nation, and I belong to the Catfish clan.
I have co-authored several published books about the amazing animals I have been fortunate enough to know on a very special level. I share my home with an adopted dog and 3 rescued parrots.
