“Critters… love them all, whether they are slimy or fuzzy, despised or glorified. Nature’s abundance provides ample inspiration to heed my inner demand to characterize them into an art form. There’s a spark that ignites my creative process when I view creatures. That spark is the tool for deciding my subject matter. Without my conscious intention they become personified, locking eyes and forging a profound connection. They must share the canvas with color, the perfect complement to nature’s wonder. We come full circle, man and beast, and we are connected.”
