The animal form has been used in art since the earliest cave drawings and there is still relevance in bringing new attention to our cohabitants that we feel dominion over. Our artificial environments come at a cost and the absurdity of our actions is evident as the natural world diminishes and there is less nature every year.

My sculptures intend to transform the animal form by the texture and colors of human detritus into poetic creatures that reflect our conflicted desire for control over our environment and our search for a feral beauty. We often move through this life at a frantic pace, and this series of creatures was created as a response to the ebb and flow of our actions. My newest work is a reflection on our complicated relationship with the
natural world that sustains us.
