Opening Reception: Thurs, Oct 21 from 6-8pm
Beginning with Snoopy as my favorite muse, I have been drawing and painting dogs since I was a child. My love for the iconic beagle was the first hint as to what direction my art would take. Today, dogs give me a voice and I hope to give them one as well.
While living in New York City, the urban landscape influenced my work and I noticed how dogs were often a part of city life. My compositions soon began to combine abstraction and realism. Layers of color and graphic spaces with dripping paint would become the backdrop for my dogs. Still, I strive to transcend the singular category of dog art.
I love all dogs including mutts, strays, rescues and seniors. A dog is a friend who will never let you down. If my paintings inspire you to rescue a dog or do something nice for one, then I've created something meaningful.
