Essay:

I have spent my career filming dolphins and whales in the oceans of the world and producing films for television. Shortly after I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2012, I took a class in watercolor painting while on a river cruise from Normandy to Paris. Traveling and exploring the great impressionist paintings there, felt like falling in love. I started sketching on my iPad and later made the leap into acrylics. Something happened in my wiring and painting became a profound passion.

Painting has not only helped to calm the tremor in my hand, but has
improved my attitude toward life and increased my energy level. My
paintings are often based on my photography from places around the world.
