“Dogs are our best friends. They are loyal and true. They are selfless in a selfish world. They are warm and a joy to be with. We could learn from our animal friends.”

My paintings are currently abstracts with occasional references of organic shapes and animals. I am interested in addressing the American ideals of equality, dignity, and justice for all inhabitants, specifically animals. Dogs have proven themselves to be loyal companions, man’s best friend. I am interested in creating works of art depicting the animal-human relationship, and social responsibility.
