This is one of the first pieces I did that wasn’t a commission.

In all my trips to the Sonoran Desert Museum when I lived in Tucson, one of the first natural habitats they created was the mountain lion habitat. I was amazed at how the cougar’s behavior mimics that of house cats. The new zoo habitat that they built for the cougars simulated a natural rocky ledge. The cougar leaped from rock to rock and ledge to ledge  so gracefully. I wanted to capture that absolute agility and balance even when his focus was elsewhere.
