Artist Statement

My artwork exists between realities. The materials are familiar through a human’s viewpoint, but are transformed into themes of sea, nature and animal worlds. Inspired by surrealism, I merge land, sea and human environments, creating a mystical world within a composition or piece of work. I juxtapose these different subjects, disregarding their true scale and treat them all as shapes fitting together as puzzle pieces. I am in awe of nature and animals and want to be a part of their world and them a part of mine. My artwork makes humans aware of animals and nature, which we live among, but often ignore. The artwork is playful and whimsical. I create environments and scenarios that can seem absurd, nonsensical but are always embedded with dark humor.
