The vast majority of my work is autobiographical, and illustrates what was happening in my life at the time. Ravens are one of my totem animals and are a reoccurring motif. Strength is a piece that illustrates the beauty of symbiotic relationships, and of hope. After all, there is a sun at night. It is a metaphor for challenges in our lives; the sun is always shining; even when we can’t see it.The style was influenced by the West Coast when I lived in Ucluelet for several years.
