Oil & Mixed Media

My oil paintings often portray animals, and might be described as representational, but with a twist. I often incorporate elements of collage for color, texture, or symbolic meaning. Images of human-made tidbits, other natural forms, even other animals, contribute to the appearance of my subject animals and their environments as a kind of testament to our shared nature – we are all composed of recycled, reconfigured, and ever changing matter.
