Based on Environmental Philosophy my paintings explore the spectrum of human involvement with the natural world. I'm interested in our collective consciousness about our place within nature and the role we as a species have taken as a result. From depictions of nature and natural phenomena to paintings which address critical issues we're facing caused by human impact on the environment, my work is meant to underscore the importance of our relationship, our actions and our responsibilities to that which sustains us.
