Thank you for taking your time to view my page and good luck on your carving adventure. If you have any questions just ask me. I'm a self taught wood carver and concentrate on the Woodland Spirits.
My work is an examination of the human and animal figure. Depicting animals in a classic portraiture style elevates these beings to a human level and forces the viewer to think of the life of that animal in human terms. My medium of choice is oil paint for its classical roots in the history of portraiture. My paintings and drawings examine our human tendency to anthropomorphize animals, giving them human traits and conditions that may or may not be realistic.
Color plays an important role in my work for my love of saturated hues and complementary colors. The idea that two entities can be at odds with one another yet work in complete harmony like human and animal relationships.
There is an element of whimsy in my work as well. We regard the animal kingdom as separate from our own looking at it through a whimsical film, fantasizing its members. As an animal lover, I greatly enjoy the idea that animals are part of a bigger universe that we as humans long to be apart of, but always look at it from the other side.
I focus mostly on human and animal relationships pertaining to the pet culture in this country. Where do we draw the line between human and animal? Is there a line? Do we have a right to even draw that line? I hope to explore these questions and ideas.
