Artist Statement

My work expresses how I see the world around me and how it makes me feel. My goal is to communicate these feelings and ideas to the viewer.

Children of Earth and my Recent Work:

With this work, I seek to illustrate the connection between our planet and ourselves. It is easy to forget that humankind is simply one of nature’s many parts, not a separate entity. Our “man-made world”, which we inhabit, can blind us to the fact that we are part of the planet, just as our heart and lungs are integral parts of our bodies.  When we do harm to the water, air, and soil—when we disregard the importance of the diversity of plants and animals—we hurt ourselves. We need to remember is not “the environment”, it is our environment.
