Artist statement:

If your life is intertwined with a dog or horse your blood pressure tends to be normal. Your existence is validated. You connect with the sights, sounds and smells of a world far removed from technology and tragic world news that seems to govern our lives.

Many years ago fellow artist Colin Coots took me to Saratoga. At 5am we heard the horses breathing and pounding the dirt track before they emerged through the fog. We drew them this way. No cameras, no theories, just a creature that shows one what passion looks like.

Twenty five years later I realized how lost I had become. Fear ruled my life. I took a trip out west because of a dog I needed to meet - a valiant breed depicted by an early 20th century artist Richard Fath, whose work I had discovered. My current work pays homage to the legacy that particular dog imprinted on my heart and the horse who whinnied every morning when I opened the barn door. This work is about the people and the animals with whom they live who fire my heart with passion and gratitude. This show is about love.
