Gessoed panels and fabrics are the welcome mats for the varied cast of birds and animals found in my work. My mind invites them in from their natural settings of fields, trees, and water. They are gracious visitors who bring joy and dazzle me with their beauty, inspiring work and images that attempt to bridge the gap between what is natural and what is civilized. Their feathers and fur seek to soften the hard edges of our dwelling places and our fact-filled lives."
