Each animal is hand-crafted and hand painted by me. Therefore the size, position, expression, and the color of their ‘skin’ (surface) vary, just as the characteristics of real animals vary within their own species.
The wheels are an outgrowth of my very early work dating back to my college days. My advanced degree show featured articulated, tracked, wheeled, floating and flying vehicles in a futuristic style. The interest in wheels and hatches survived this period and became incorporated into my signature wheeled animals.
The wheels allow my creations the freedom to ride, run, jump, glide or dance, as they wish.
