Welcome to my portfolio
My current work largely features on local species, such as birds and fish. As animals have no language, they are ideal forms for ineffable concepts. But consequently they are also extremely vulnerable to the whims and actions of humans. This understanding is reflected in my art though my final products are far from accurate depictions of how these creatures look in real life. Instead, I strive to inject intense emotion into the portrayals, deliberately evoking a response from the viewers. These reactions are not necessarily positive, often my designs are meant to take the reader aback or consider the dire dangers of extinction. In a moment when the world is changing rapidly and natural resources are consumed thoughtlessly , the time to act to appreciate and protect nature is terrifyingly short. I hope that by appealing to my viewers emotionally through these images of animals, I can activate their conscience and catalyze action.
