Animals have always been interesting and beautiful to me, for a multitude of reasons. But what I can appreciate most about them, as an artist, are the colors and patterns that they have. Tigers have black stripes, but underneath that there’s the white that contours their face and the sandstone orange that covers the rest of them. Snakes have scales! Beautiful plates, shelved to create a staggered design. The Animal Series is my appreciation to the wonders of the animal kingdom.
