About the current series
Animals carry traits that are similar to our own. Some are fierce protectors, such as the Wolf. Others, like the Elephant, hold a deep regard for unity and family. What we most admire in animals are the very things we tend to connect to and appreciate in our own lives. While I attempt to retain the traditional shapes of the animals that I paint, this series is about connecting to their unique spirit with the use of bold, luminous color. Much can be learned from the animal kingdom when we begin seeing animals as our counterparts, not our subordinates. We are all connected.
