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:

In my work, I seek to illustrate the interrelationship between ourselves and our planet. It is easy to forget that humankind is one of nature’s many parts, not a separate entity. The manmade world in which we inhabit blinds us to the fact that we are part of the environment, just as our heart or lungs are parts of ourselves.  When we poison our water or air or disregard the importance of the diversity of plants and animals, we are doing injury to ourselves. It is not “the” environment, it is our environment.
