On Transformation:
I am interested in contemporary and historical art that expresses the human condition through the depiction of animals. My figures wear masquerades of animals from their environment. Many undergo physiological transformations; arms become wings, hair becomes feathers. Transmutations have metaphorical, symbolic and allegorical significance. The process of transformation represents personal artistic meditations on possibility, despite cultural, environmental and political inertia.
