“Hyper-realistic drawings and paintings of the natural world depict my fascination for earth sciences and biological phenomena. My artwork investigates the interdependence of species in shared ecosystems. Withdrawing media, I produce subjects in a shared habitat that are fragile, vulnerable, and visceral. These multifaceted interconnections are explored through the relationship between western coniferous forests and their wildfires. There are many fire dependent plants, animals, and trees that play an important role in these forest communities. While wildfires can be devastating, they are necessary to create healthier forests that promote disease prevention, space for new growth, and species diversity. My drawings emphasize fire as a natural impetus for change and regeneration.”
