Painting is a stepping off point into my imagination. Putting brush to paper is a meditation for me - a way to center my thoughts and feelings.
Animals of all shapes and sizes have always been my passion and each piece begins with a deep admiration of the unique beauty and character of the creature I am painting.
Other sources of inspiration include an animal's mythological or spiritual role in different tribal societies; the visual language associated with animals, cultures or places; a creature's role in the larger ecosystem; and a desire to experiment with different compositional elements.
My primary goal with each piece is to capture the unique spirit and personality of an animal using a combination of color, line, patterns, symbols and texture.
My finished pieces reflect my own interpretations of an animal’s spirit as well as cultural and artistic styles that inspire me.
