Artist Statement:

"I am primarily interested in animals, the beauty of their forms within both natural and constructed environments, as well as the concepts of predator and prey - usually attributed only to the animal world but also found within human nature. Unacknowledged as part of nature, humans tend to project themselves and their desired or imagined characteristics onto animals. Preserved in zoos, common to both rural and urban environments, the animals are considered by visitors to be either extraordinary, as pests or even despised rather than admirable, based on human perceptions/imaginings of the value of different species. In some of my artworks, the images represent conflict between human impact on the earth and on wildlife, the vulnerability of animals and natural environments due to the threats of climate change, pollution and other contemporary environmental problems."
