My job, as an illustrator of breed standards, is to portray the "blueprint" of the breed with the guidance of the breed club mentors or judges' education committee and utilizing the written standard for the breed. In creating work for the illustrated standard, it is not my job to interject personal opinions or an "ideal" of the breed as I see it.  The best course of action is to merely follow the guidance of the illustrated standard committee in creating an "image" for the breed.  This is the part of my work that is, by far, the most challenging. My portfolio of illustrated standards represents a continuing body of work that can serve to both educate and inspire those who cherish and strive to uphold the building blocks of a breed.  It is always the hope that the illustrated standard will be a tool for the individual breed club that will be well used and retained as a guide for many years.

Along the way, I have met and worked with some wonderful and knowledgeable people. I would like to thank them all for their assistance which has guided me in creating the drawings for their illustrated standard projects.  It is both an ongoing education and rewarding experience. An added bonus of the job is that you meet and acquire many new friends along the way, not to mention the knowledge that is gained from their expertise.
