These works represent a convergence of the sublime wonder of childhood, land- and seascapes and the animal kingdom wherein all experience is extraordinary. The mundane becomes myth. The animal spirit expresses the interior dialogue of personal emotions. The defamiliarization of circumstance converts negative capability into imagination.

Attention to detail is crucial to the evocation of magic in an expansive landscape and to the subjects power of transformation.
