My job, as an illustrator, is to portray the "blueprint" of the breed under the guidance of the breed club mentors and the written standard for the breed. It is not my job to interject personal opinions or "ideals" of the breed as I see it, but to merely follow the guidance of the breed club standard committee in giving an "image" to their ideal representation of the breed.  This is the part of my work that is, by far, the most challenging. It 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 it will be a tool for the individual breed club that will be well used and held as a guide for many years.

My work with breed club illustrated standard and judges' education committees, has afforded the opportunity to meet and work with some wonderful and knowledgeable people. I would like to thank them all for their insight and understanding which has guided me in doing a job that is both an ongoing education and rewarding experience.

To date, I have been commissioned by the following breed clubs which represents the highest number of illustrated breed standards completed by a single artist:
