Artist Statement

I love to see the scrap become alive with its own personality. There is magic in the fire. Blind Date is a chance meeting between species that have a long history of feuding. I have seen snakes eating birds, and birds pecking snakes to death. As I love both birds and snakes, I have placed them together in the hope that they will start the long process of healing that can end this age-old conflict.
