Artist Statement

As a deliberate visual collector of the anthropologically ordinary, I stare at people wherever and whenever possible. I gaze, thinking about their grandparents and great-grandparents, and their genetic make up. I know they have felt pain, humor, love and that they have formed opinions. Motivated by a curiosity to understand human nature and visually reflect these observations is the conceptual basis of my work.


We are animals. I believe the pantheon of gods agreed unanimously that inserting thought and language into animals would be equally brutal and humorous. The Saucy Series strives to visually combine the visceral physicality of the known intermingled with the ephemerally imagined and unknown. The dualities and contradictions of the human condition are revealed in the drawings.
