The mystery and wildness of animals is the inspiration for my work. Plant, animal forms and background shapes interlock creating compositional as well as emotional tension. Often arrangements of repeating shapes can be found in both the positive and negative spaces. Through content and these formal elements I hope to represent the interrelatedness of nature and life.
I identify with the survival instincts of my subjects, and with their vulnerability. In my need for serenity I create a safe place for them. While maintaining respect for the cycles of the natural world, the instinct to keep the wolf away from the door prevails.
