I paint animals, and it began with primates.  I read about Virunga Gorillas in the Congo that were being murdered senselessly.  The expressiveness of the primates compelled to do numerous studies.  I drew and painted primates and came to a place that enabled me to connect with my own experiences.  Through this process one thing that kept coming up was the resiliency of the life force in all living things despite hurt and obstacles. My work has expanded to include other undomesticated animals that I meet in my travels including cows and goats.
