"As an artist, I am interested in the relationship between the individual and their environment (namely the sociopolitical structures they interact within and the natural environment that they eke sustenance from). In my work, I aim to make the viewer reflect on their own interactions in these fields and the impact that they have on the world. I do this by criticizing the shortfalls of the politically powerful and addressing the devastating impacts of human greed on the environment".
