“Scratchboard and paint lend themselves beautifully to telling the story of how animals and humans are connected. Animals expose the transparency of innocence and the authenticity of emotion. Humans on the other hand devote much of their time to masking their essence and their true selves due to their vulnerability. Illustrating human emotions and experiences through this anthropomorphism. A playfulness quality shows that the unimaginable and unreasonable can become sensible and absolute. Telling the story with effervescent shows the impression of the ingenuous. I use satire with my animals to expose human folly. I want and hope to connect the viewer to the untainted spirit that lies within and take them back to the unlimited imagination of childhood.”
