I lived in Arizona for several years, and fell in love with everything about the
Southwest--the brilliant intense colors of the landscape, the crisp clarity of the
air, the immensity of the horizon, and the legends and lore of the Native Americans.
All of this, and my very fertile imagination, contributed to these surrealistic paintings
of the American Southwest. There is magic in the Southwest. Places where inexplicable
things happen. Where rabbits dance. Where coyotes gather in a circle and tell tall
tales. Places where, if you stand barefoot and very still on naked earth at night,
you can hear the song of the land in the bones of your feet. Places where ancient
ruins take on their original shapes and one can hear the voices of another time on

Coyote is a trickster, and full of tall tales. Here he is, full of his stories,
padding thru a warm Sedona night. Inspired by Native American mythology and Southwest
art, this creature full of legends stealthily crosses from the realm of fantasy into
a real nocturnal high desert landscape.
Urban Coyote traipses thru a surrealistic landscape of straight lines and sharp corners,
the world as man remakes it, covering the ground with buildings and filling the sky
with pollution. Yet this cleverest of nature’s creatures adapts and survives, living
in our environment.
