Watercolor provides a spontaneous medium for which I am comfortable working. My fascination with birds and other animals provide an essential narrative in my work. I like to think that the animals or natural objects that inhabit my paintings are completely heedless to the all important creations of humankind. In some works they are able to magically reuse, adapt or manipulate the materials humans may have discarded or left behind.

We create our own meaning as to our place in the world in the form of art, literature (books), architecture, and technology… but nature and the greater universe is uncaring and wild. Seen or unseen humanity is bound by natural laws . We are part of this planet and are destined to live by the laws of the greater universe. We just need to fearlessly take it in with respect and awe.
