Busy Busy Squirrel

Animals inspire me. Domestic, wild, woolly, free and flying animals also teach and entertain me. Those who know me vouch that I am apt to talk to animals and bestow them with anthropomorphic characteristics and personalities. This, paired with a creative visual bend and a love of metaphors, conjures source material for my art and entertainment on runs.

is also a relief print that I hand carved and printed today using a rubber plate and water-based inks. To learn more about relief printing click on this link:
