“Why Crocodiles?” I’m often asked. The influences are rich and varied: Partly autobiographical (so many brilliant childhood songs and stories about charming/dangerous crocodiles) and partly psychological (Dad had big green eyes and a fantastic smile, but he could really SNAP at us kids). Spiritual too (playing with the the Buddhist notion of attachment and appetite.)
The early art school crocodiles were fantastical beasts and girls would ride them, or feed them flowers but over the years I think I have tamed with love. Having enormous appetites for ice-cream, music and flowers, these Crocs are romantic, charming and nurturing care-givers to little Crocs. They are bon vivants and enthusiasts, like me!
