Artist's Statement:
My current body of work features Beau, my companion, muse and model. While dogs are always "other", they are also vehicles for our emotional projections. This tension drives the series, especially as Beau grows older.

In making these images, I am honoring our bond while also acknowledging the gulf between human and canine. My process contrasts linear marks and washes, clarity and dissolution, embodying the tenuous relationship between presence and absence, love and mortality.
