About My Work:

My work aims to depict the sentience and autonomy of the animal and extend these beliefs to others. To enforce the connection and focus of the animal in my paintings the subjects are typically rendered alone and in an expressive manner that is true to the species’ anatomy. The animals in my paintings often appear without background imagery. Removing the animal from its natural environment represents the surreal and empty environments wildlife is increasingly being forced to navigate during the Anthropocene.  Depicting the animal alone challenges values of the human-centric hierarchy our society operates on. I want to confront the viewers with the power, mystery, fear, and beauty that is encapsulated within the animal gaze and the animal form to bridge the perceived line between animals and humans.
