I am a pop surrealism acrylic painter, and my work centers around illustrating animal/human behavior and interconnectedness. Humans can build walls and cities and malls and weapons, but we can never truly separate from earth.

It is necessary that we, as a species, learn to respect our planet and nonhuman brothers and sisters as we do our intimate relationships with other humans. It is necessary that we see our natural world as the real world and the only actual world instead of seeing our plastic human world as all-important. One individual may not be able to save the planet or a species, but if we each take ANY step towards responsibility for our actions, even if it’s one person at a time, one person a day, one person a week, change will happen.
