“My artwork is primarily inspired by my experience with nature and environmentalism. It is specifically motivated by my concern for the future due to the effects of climate change, sea level rise, deforestation and many other environmental impacts humans have had on the planet. In my images I try to portray this modern conflict between the natural world and the manmade world in interesting and provocative ways.”
