The inevitable effects of human “progress” is a constant source of concern for her. Gretchen creates drawings, paintings, and mixed media work to explore the enigma of the human-animal relationship. She strives to inspire thought concerning the struggles of all animals as they try to exist among us. She believes that by fostering a caring attitude toward all living beings, we connect more closely to our earth and each other.
