About The Artwork

In my work, I create pieces that speak about my inner understanding and love of animals. Part of my process, before I begin to work in my studio, is to study my object of interest. I analyze their movement and behavior so I can incorporate them into my piece. I am not looking only to capture the image of an animal, I explore my subject to find the essence and bring it out in my work. My artwork speaks of intimate themes, our pets. Pets in today's life are our friends and comfort. They keep us from loneliness. Pets are joy and cats are my obsession. I am influenced by prehistoric and early 20-century art. Where the emphasis is on shapes in a stylized and minimalistic way.
