I buried them, and caged them. The hurt, frustration, the disappointment. They morphed, they moved, metastasized until I couldn't hold. They're out, they're gone, they've left, escaped, but with release I'm free.

I’ve always wanted to befriend a giant animal as a companion to ride, and adventure with. Learning about animals, and appreciating them through my artwork has been a lifelong passion.
The giant animal featured in this piece is a Clouded Leopard. It is the closest living relative to the Saber-Toothed Cat. Their canine teeth to skull size ratio is the largest of all big cats. Native to Southern Asia and are a critically endangered species.
Once thought extinct in Taiwan there have been several recent sightings of these incredible animals. So this piece is in part a celebration of their reemergence in that habitat as well as an expression of childhood dreams that can only be realized through my art.

Caretaker of Seas
She fell to the sea while still a young wife. But wonder and grace has kept her life. Transformed by the sea as if it were hers. She tends to each beast, kelp and creature with ease. The force from above gave new strength to she. Protector, provider, caretaker of seas.

The doubt, the worry, the crippling fear. I don't know which voice to believe. Is it me or I or we or mine the ones who speak in my ear? They captivate, ruminate, sabotage, spoil my wonder my courage, my zeal.

Hackles raised, lips curled, teeth exposed and raw. Aggressive, protective, with focus and fear. We won't let the danger near.
