Artist Statement:
My current body of work explores the relationship between humans and the environment. Through my art making, I am processing my concerns about the state of the earth as a result human actions. I explore these concerns through careful observation and paintings of nature in human-made contained, environments. Additionally, I use collage as a means of processing and creation. Through this work, I wish to create something enduring and cherished in an ecology that can feel transient and devalued.
