I am inspired by the natural world. It reminds me of my own significance and place in the big picture. At times, my subject matter may range in content. This may reveal the many things I think about and desire to see or experience. On the whole, I tend to explore a topic in multiples and look for the link and the message the animal or environment attempts to convey. Like giving birth, each subject appears to have its own energy and color that reacts and converses with its surroundings. I enjoy attempting to depict the visual conversations.
This painting is based on a series completed of cats. When an undergraduate at SVA, one of my teachers Lucio Pozzi, told me to paint a cat a day if I ever felt myself going into a stagnant feeling. This was to get me out of an artistic block and helped me appreciate more of what I saw every day.
