  • Interests: art, animals and things on the darker side of reality
  • About Me: The art I create is rebellious and macabre. It is created out of my empathy and love for animals. It also, distinctly, gives voice to the outrage I have towards the cruelty of animal abuse and the environmental damage we inflict on our planet. My art oozes apathy and moral offense; there are some of us do care about earth and her precious animal life. I reveal the dark underbelly of human nature; give our non-human denizens a new identity, and I try to express the fragility of our world.
    The animal skulls, which I have recreated with my vision, are found in the desert just outside of Tucson, Arizona. This particular patch desert is known as “Dogpatch” and is in a rural area of southern side of the city. It is a dumping ground for animals, dead or alive, ranging from dogs, cats, horses, and livestock. I created this art by visualizing what may have been that animal’s everyday life before its destined conclusion. I visualize that animal’s complete birth, life and death. It is a very soul heart wrenching process which also provokes anger in my being. The signs of neglect, overpopulation, and sometimes abuse of domesticated animals are more than apparent to an outsider of this community, but seem accepted or ignored by most of its residents. Mediums I use for skulls are acrylic paint iridescent rubs, epoxy, screws, wire and other odds and ends I find including clutch rings, small gears, small motor brushes. I place L.E.D lights for the eyes to give them a living presence. The skulls I use are: dogs, cats, rats, snakes, goat, javalina, cows, and horse. The javalina skull you see before you is my representation of humanity’s prehistoric ideals towards the cruelty of animals.
    I’m a self taught artist and have worked with many different mediums over the years. Varying in difference types of paint: from acrylic to blood, the bones of animals and visual computer pictures. I have been working on various types of art from the time I was in high school. I was employed with Artist Tile for two and a half years. In 1993, I had the extreme pleasure of creating a project involving ceramic tiles made into a giant two sided mural on I10 and Miracle Mile exit ramp in Tucson, Arizona. There are three tile murals on the southbound and three on the northbound sides of the exit ramp. The murals are ceramic tiles that are silkscreened and then glazed. The project took about 9 months to complete and I was one of two people who elaborated on the glazing.
