This series of drawings, which incorporates an element of collage, is dealing with female missing persons. The missing person is the subject in my drawings and they are always paired with a collaged animal. I am drawn to the idea of paying tribute to these lost humans from decades past, to acknowledge that they existed on this earth. I am also perhaps drawing myself, or all of us, as we have all felt "missing" or "lost" throughout the journey of life. The animals exist in my drawings as witnesses to whatever may have happened, as animals are witnesses to many events throughout all of our lives, but remain voiceless. They also serve the purpose of providing comfort to us, or an unconditional love and understanding that gets lost on being human.
