"My work has the traditional air of tightly rendered nature illustrations but with a highly emotional range of surreal metaphorical themes. My paintings and sketches present my vision of life's struggles and triumphs that are largely autobiographical. The subjects are inspired directly from both living organisms witnessed on my extensive travel to remote regions and the research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences. I use acrylic on maple panel in thin gradient washes leaving the wood grain visible. Over the years, I have developed a complex process of masking and staining so the natural grain can collaborate with each composition."
