My work examines the connections we have with animals and their larger relationship to our world and environment. The result is a series of fantastic microcosms that bring a consciousness to their decorative status. My sculptures tell a story about the fragility and conservation of these small worlds as well as describing their role in a grander scheme. We live in a time when our smallest decisions can affect our environment in unpredictable ways and as a conscientious inhabitant, I am constantly weighing my choices and attempting to choose the lesser evil. My works are a gentle mirror allowing us to examine our contradictory world.
