I live in Vermont, my favorite place in all the world. It’s a place full of pastures and green mountains, old farms and forest. It’s full of back-country dirt roads, deer, coyote, fox, raccoons, fisher cats, woodchucks, chipmunks, and hawks.
I have been an artist my whole life, but I am only just beginning to write. It’s coming out in poetry at the moment with the occasional opinion post thrown in, but I have an awful lot on my mind for the future.
We are wild too…
In recent years I have infused my artwork with humor and concentrated on the simple joys in life (see my past Chicken Art.) But my work is evolving now... I will be painting many animals both wild and domestic, and I hope to make my work the best it can be to represent them.
One of my deepest wishes is to see humankind change our relationship with animals, to change our relationship to the earth itself: how we eat, drink, produce, and reproduce, how we think of this earth we are a part of, and our understanding of our place in it.
