“Equine Express: Penticton, Berlin, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin” – ink over printed original drawing
“My paintings and drawings use depictions of animals and other natural elements as metaphors to explore human issues. I find the symbolic potency of animal imagery fascinating; frequently other creatures indicate human traits or behaviors more explicitly than actual humans. Historically, we have romanticized, amplified and oversimplified the characteristics of other creatures in order to use them as devices in heraldry and storytelling. My works compare and contrast these time-honored interpretations with new discoveries about the natural world and modern human concerns. ”
