Nature is my muse. Animals are losing their habitat and they are, at the very least, confronted by or threatened by all of our discards. Though the birds in my paintings are not victimized. Rather they have the upper hand and are ready to stand toe-to-toe, sometimes with harmful objects. They claim salvage rights to our residue. They adapt the object to fit their needs – to survive.
I’m no different. As an artist I’ve had to adapt to say better those which are my concerns: words, book art, gender, sculpture, minimalism, design… now painting. I too am an adaptive and endangered animal, adapting images knowing better how to communicate with them as well as having deeper insights to who I am.
