DescriptionThis was a painting that was commissioned at the end on 2011 based on three Australian cats. (Hi D and C!) Instead of doing 3 different cats, they all got merged into one cat. You know, now as I write this, I wonder if can animals be defined by their country like we tend to do with people? Hmmm, these cats live in Australia but are they Australian cats? I suppose so. I know, it doesn't really matter. Sorry about the tangent. ...Enjoy!
Keemo Gallery, Grand Rapids Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement
I paint people. The people in my painting are usually based on real people that I may have ran into through the day or based upon people I know. Every person/painting has a story.
My paintings currently reside in private collections in Canada, England, Austria, Brazil, Spain, Australia, South Korea and almost every state in the US (come on Nebraska, North Dakota and Idaho!).
Current exhibitions include: The Take 121 Gallery in Nashville, TN. The B.O.B in Grand Rapids, MI. Two paintings are in the current issue of Black Oak Presents. My work has been used in both print and web publications. I have participated in both group and solo shows.
