Artist’s Statement

I am a narrative artist. I speak to a variety of ideas and issues that I feel are important.  My prints and drawings are often vignettes which describe or interpret what could be described as a moment related to the human condition.  The human condition, I have found, is often greatly enhanced by the influence of the animals in our lives.  I seek to strike a familiar chord in some viewers who might think, “I never saw things quite that way, but I think I may have been there or experienced something very similar”.
