Artist Statement: 
I made the decision to concentrate my art on Wildlife, mostly endangered wildlife, to promote awareness and interest in our vanishing natural world. I am self taught. I have a distinct style. I'm am not trying for photorealism. I want art to look like art, made by technical skill and the free flowing hand. I have been known by many as the artist that paints the unusual animals, not the popular selling animals. I like the Tapirs, the Giant Anteaters, the Maned Wolves, the Opossums. I paint with emotion and passion and know my subject with study and interest. Doug Hiser
