"I’m dealing with stories, at once personal and collective, with origin tales, with understanding that we are the animals, with being placed into an Eden and with how we roam there, giving and taking and leaving our mark for better and worse. Life size scale makes the drawings a space to enter. Here is a place to confront the wild, the unknown, to greet these beasts. They emerge in a dance with the immutable nature of the physical world. They look out to be seen, they own the pride of reflected gaze, they question the divide between them and us, and we can wonder what we are doing here."
