I use my paintings to explore our inextricable interconnectedness to the environment, and to consider alternative futures for our ecological landscape. I employ a lens of abstraction to imagine how our ecology and our humanity can continue to morph, evolve, and adapt in the face of unprecedented uncertainty.”
