Original Sold.

Acrylic on papyrus, mounted on gessoed hardboard panel. Original is 5 × 5 inches x 1.5 inches deep. Crackle medium is hand applied and continues around sides. I like giving my animals an exaggerated and slightly demented look, a style that is often called pop surrealism, though I don’t really have any particular style or genre in mind when I create them.

Most of my work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without a plan. I believe there are meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying the absurdity! Full Bio
