Oliaris Caught in the Light

I have been working with Audrey Derell, an amazing graphic designer, to create a portrait of one of my creatures. Audrey orchestrated this image called "Oliaris Caught in the Light."

(What you are seeing is a photograph of a rabbit that has tripped a trigger on a night-vision infrared broad spectrum camera. Used mainly for security, I was able to 'borrow' one of these gadgets and set it up in a secret location...hoping to capture the elusive Oliaris rabbit. In the photo, it appears that he is sitting in a wooded area.)

This image is being released as a limited edition digital print in conjunction with a fundraiser for arts in public schools in Santa Fe.

New York Post

The New York Post interviewed me and then used one of my images in their article about SOFA New York.

Alleni Taking Aim

Historically, it seems like rabbits have been portraid as meek, passive creatures, something afraid of human contact...but not in New Mexico. The large jack rabbits that I see around Santa Fe are nothing but fast, sleek, intelligent and sometimes scary. I often stumble on them while hiking, some are brown and white, some black and white.

I have started thinking of them as tricksters, especially when it comes to interacting with humans. Once my back is turned, I figure they can do just about anything to us!

Alleni, the about rabbit, has a large, heavy wooden croquet ball. He does not seem timid as he looks around for a target.

Surviving SOFA

I have just returned from participating in SOFA New York where I was represented by Jane Sauer and her amazing staff. During the fair, five of my pieces found new homes, one being purchased by a young couple from Cuzco, Peru. Here are the pieces that were sold:
