In a geological age rerouted by human-influenced disturbances, we can no longer afford to think of our natural environment as separate from humans. My work addresses the physicality that characterizes our impact on human rights and ecology, one where death and displacement is a possible result.
Throughout my artistic career I have experimented with non-traditional painting techniques and produced symbols of aesthetic and social contemplation. My painting practice has centered around representing artistic language, ephemeral spaces, documenting individual experiences and translating coexistence onto the canvas.
