I like my art to be playful but with a serious message in mind. The giraffe is universally beloved, yet it is vulnerable and heading toward extinction. I choose animals as my subject to bring awareness to their plight, using color and brushwork to convey their importance; as if the very air were dancing in celebration of their existence. Oils on aluminum are my preferred materials as the slick surface is perfect to achieve this. My goals and my duty are to depict them not as beasts, but as living, loving, intelligent beings with a full spectrum of emotions that are worthy of their place on the planet.
