Environmental messages built the landscape for my paintings so they remain prevalent, though not always at the top of my thoughts. Political and social issues come through in the narrative, but again not the focus. I am telling a story, creating a world that in many ways reflects our own. The animals in this world deal with issues just as we do. They have varying religious beliefs, love, family, crime, work, and so on.
