Welcome to my world, where the boundaries between human and animal have disappeared, and you just never know what you might find.
You're an animal! But that's alright, so am I.
I think a few of us just may have forgotten, so I hope my art serves as a reflection and reminder that we are all members of the animal kingdom and we should treat one another (fuzzy and four-legged or not) as such.
I love to play – with animals, narratives, imagery, humor. I especially enjoy playing with reality by bending the rules and creating work that however implausible – at least for a moment –seems ALMOST possible. Work that not only delights viewers, but asks them to consider their own personal reality.
Through my oil paintings, I morph everyday human experiences into an alternate universe where an animal is just as likely as a person to sit down to some light reading, brush their teeth before bed, or profess their undying love for another through some grand gesture. My body of work aims to simultaneously make light of, and marvel at, our uniquely human existence...
