In my recent works I search for the tone of our very distinct present, as I feel there is a hollowness that pervades. My drawings keep in mind our environmental crisis and other modern dilemmas, in hope to find that which is still sacred. I often ask what I can do as an artist to address the impacts of the way we live in the company of the natural world in the age of climate change. The objective through my works is to provide an honest emotional account of our present to inspire reverence for the world we live in, igniting action to move forward as stewards of our natural world.
