Artist Statement

I enjoy working in a variety of mediums to explore the ever-changing perspective of our human and animal relationship and how our lives interweave with sentient beings through pet portraiture and how these personal relationships differ so dramatically from our conflicting perspective of animal welfare as a whole. While juggling this conflicting perspective of animal welfare vs what is on supermarket shelves and therefore what is in the fridge at home, I Interweave ideas about the impact of deliberate destruction to wildlife by trophy hunters selfishly endangering the survival of wild animal species for future generations to follow and aim to open the conversation of self-reflection into our  own personal attitude towards ownership of animals.
