Well, it is mostly cost that effects my animal hunting. I am always looking for reasonable ways to find decent taxidermy. I really believe art for me is a process of showing up for life, finding weird shit and putting it together. When I am checked out not paying attention I lose out on the process. I don't plan ahead very much at all. I just end up with this or that and it starts to come together. I find there is a weird synchronicity where I will end up with a whole bunch of one thing and it starts to become an art piece.
Do you feel like you are interacting or relating something to people though your work and ideas?
Your work could be perceived in a lot of different ways....some of the settings you create seem to have a sincere charm and comfort but there is also a kind of surreal horror. Do you feel like your work is sort of conceptually open ended?
I do feel it is open ended. I never see it as morbid really, but I see how people could. Art for me is puking out pain and life experience the only healthy way I have been able to so I suppose a lot of darkness comes out in my artwork as well as hope and joy. I also am really amazed when life can be mundane and boring but I can plug away at a piece every day and end up making something really imaginative. Its like a really great surprise.
