The Cozy Red


My artwork is all about animals. I love portraying their nuances and character in my art, whether through drawing or sculpture.

My Pen & Ink drawings are made of thousands of dots in a method called stippling. Scratchboard drawings are created by using sharp tools (tattoo needles, blades, etc.) to cut through a black ink layer, revealing the white clay layer beneath. Both mediums produce detailed,dramatic portrayals of the animals I draw. My wire sculptures are uniquely original – character added with embellishments. Some are realistic while others are whimsical.
