Artist statement

Travels with Dharma Dog came out of the daily walks with my dog, Nikki. The idea of a fellow traveler on a journey through life is borrowed from traditional stories and folktales. The dog's personality is constructed from a diverse gallery of characters, including a famous comic book dog. The accompanying poems are modeled on Zen haikus, which express Buddhist concepts without direct reference to religion or dogma. In all, I try to maintain a whimsical, light-hearted feel to the art. See, also, Dharma dog's own facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/dharmadogspot.
