My love for animals and nature has shaped my art since I first put pencil to paper, as has my love of mythology. Both tell a story of dramatic, often violent change.
There are gods who transform into beasts, or who were born with the heads of animals, and there are gods who cursed humans to take on animal or plant forms as punishment. Mirroring those ancient myths in often grotesque ways we find in contemporary times that animals are being transformed against their will due to interactions with human pollutants, as well as animal testing, deforestation, the draining of wetlands, and the hunting of endangered species. I am interested in the power of these mutations both for their mythological echoes and their dire environmental implications.

Although I had long intended to go to school for wildlife biology I wound up choosing to study fine art at Pratt Institute, where I graduated from the Fine Art department with my BFA. Although I now live and work in Oakland CA, it is the remote mountains and oceans of my childhood that are echoed in my work, my love for the natural world and fear for its loss. As humanity encroaches ever further upon the remnants of wilderness left in the world I hope to allow some sense of wilderness to encroach back upon those people who view my work.
hey everyone! If you live around the NYC area or are visiting the NYC area this week I've got a piece going up at My Plastic Heart for their new group show "You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone" opening on Sept 5th! It should be a great show, there are a ton of talented artists with work up, including Zoe Williams, Lou Pimentel, Yuri Leonov, Allison Sommers, and many more! My piece "Save the Queen" will be available for sale during the show as well : )

Love your artwork I had been interested in wildlife biology back when I was in university too, but my first year bio teacher was horribly sexist and just...well, horrible. So I took computer science instead! Do I dare say what year I graduated!  Anyway love your art style, some pieces are both creepy and beautiful at the same time. :)
