Statement

I remember the day I chose stripes as my style of choice. Though I had done quite a few striped drawings in high school I didn’t realize it would become my passion until right after I graduated high school in 1986. There are endless possibilities when it comes to painting in stripes and there are so many subjects I’d like to interpret into stripes and color.

My particular style of painting started back in the early 1980’s. Initially, I would create abstract drawings with stripes but then I had an epiphany — I wanted to combine the design of stripes with a recognizable subject — hence giving something ordinary a unique presences.

I paint dogs in stripes because it makes us look at dogs not just as animals we own but as part of our culture. Painting them in stripes echoes how integrated they have become.
