My aim is to take pencils and paper and create an emotion. I would like people to look at my work and feel the same connection with the bird or animal that I feel and that they are being given a chance to enter their most secret world.
If a viewer is drawn in, then it can feel, hopefully, like a relationship has begun, deepening the sense of care or respect for the natural world
Animals have a purity of motive and a simplicity of intention which feels like an ideal for us to aspire to. I would like to think my work can be a mirror in which we see our better selves.
