Work depicting animals focuses on them as individual selves and their impact on people through relationship. The animals and my covenant with them are the subject, worthy of being offered up to the viewer for a closer look.

Animals, like the rest of nature, provide me with a portal into empathy and compassion, restoring the connection with the oneness of life. Interacting with animals removes my preconceptions of who I think I am, the labels and roles I identify with, and never fails to bring me back to the present moment.
