“I am obsessed with reality, whether it’s dew on a heifer’s whisker, smoke rising from a branding iron in contact with fur and flesh, or a newborn suckling noisily on its mother. I want my drawings to capture not only what we see, but allow us to imagine the smells, sounds and feel of a particular moment.”
