The Albino Alligator Graphite | 48” x 72” | 2015 (part of BALDERDASH BFA Exhibition)

Excerpt from story: After traveling many hours, the girl finally found the right swamp that mirrored that of the one in her dream. The girl sat there waiting patiently in the thick muck for several minutes, when finally a massive female albino alligator appeared from the murky water before her. This was her teacher. The alligator told her many different stories of love and heartbreak across all of time, and how the people in the stories healed and grew from their experiences with such things.
