Squid the Abyssinian cat

What is The Squid Gallery?

The Squid Art Gallery was initially created as a showcase for my original artwork when I worked at Adobe Systems and they began focusing on developing products for the web design market in the mid-90’s. My creations featured Squid, my Abyssinian cat of nearly 12 years. He was not only a wonderful pet, but a terrific inspiration for my artistic endeavors. He is the subject of many the pieces in the "Squid Art" gallery.

The art in the Squid Gallery continues to grow as subsequent "models": Bubbles, Mango, Peaches, Marula & Pebbles are featured in more current pieces. My art and photography raise funds for many animal related charities. In addition to featuring my pets in my compositions, I have focused on wildlife and landscape photography and have created books of my photography as well as conduct photography workshops & photo-safaris in Africa.
