"Being an artist is the same as being a behavioral biologist: I have to be patient, open minded and willing to observe every little detail."
My originals can only be purchased on this site.
If you would like a customized illustration of an animal or plant of your choosing.
My work is driven by my fascination for life. How all beings are so amazing in their form and function. Unique and beautiful!
I mainly use pencils and water color for my illustrations.
Look at these eyes! Tarsier live in the Indonesian rain forest and need to hear and see well. As they have huge eyes compared to the rest of their body they are also called cobold makis.
Bees use their whole body to communicate the direction and distance of the next food source.
The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by man.
This is one of my favorite drawings as I am researching the rabbit over 10 years. Rabbits use their urine and feces strategically to communicate with each other. No shit!
The Pistol shrimp or also Snapping shrimp called has a larger right claw with which he can create bubbles under water. The bubbles explode under water just as loud as a starting jet.
The males of the great bustard turn their wings during courtship and present the females their white elbow feathers - a great spectacle!
Poecilia mexicana is a species of fish in the family Poeciliidae. They live in Mexico. This is also where I researched their sexual behavior. The female Atlantic Molly as all other Poecilids do not lay eggs but bear their offspring alive!
I enjoyed very much this drawing in all its details. The snails even have eyes on their antennae. The snails burrow in loose soil so they can hibernate and lay their eggs.
I drew this one in 2015 for another biologist who studied the stress response of the Turbot. With both eyes on the left side, the Turbot lays flat on the bottom of the ocean. Perfectly camouflaged!
Yes, I love sushi! Nothing left to say but to take water colors and draw a yummi piece of sushi.
"Ita daki mas" as the Japanese would say.
