“My artwork focuses on images of individual animals, in relationship to each other and within the context of various types of environments. The work is expressive while maintaining structural accuracy in animal forms. Environments depict a moment in time, where the viewer and the creature cross paths in a brief encounter. Some of my artworks are about admiring the color and patterns in the natural environment, others present a deeper view of the nuanced relationships that exist between animal and environment, or predator and prey. These meetings or moments in time may also be viewed as a reflection of dark spaces, and predator/prey relations found within the recesses of human nature. In some of my latest works, I have focused on animals and their vulnerability for survival due to the results of climate change, pollution and other contemporary environmental threats. At this point in time, I believe that these are the greatest concerns for humans and animals alike.”
