Artist Statement

The characters portrayed in my work are rather whimsical and the materials I use in my art making process have an inherent quality of mystery. The finished size of my art varies from mural-like to quite small.

Classic fairy tales and fables are my inspiration and I use insects and other creatures to tell stories. My earliest childhood memories are the illustrations of Alice in Wonderland by John Tenniel. As I began to suspect the intricate political and social satire of famous fairy tales my intrigue and inspiration took another direction.

In my work critters sit side-by-side with a bit of tension regarding their level of comfort. Or – you may find frogs sitting in a council meeting to consider a water shortage and the subsequent loss of their clans.
