From the artist: “Sew Much Gratitude: A Reunion With Animals Through Collage and Paint” celebrates my love for animals and my passion for advocating for them. Most of my artwork features animals in some way so I wanted this solo show to engage others in the contagious love and awe that is embedded in my animal portraits.  Some of these works pay tribute to animals that are critically endangered, other works are common animals that I believe we take for granted.  As you look upon these portraits try and guess which animals are endangered. It might surprise you. For me when I look upon the endangered animal list, I experience shock, outrage, helplessness and grief for the challenges and struggles that are facing our earth.”
