"Living and working in Delaware, I create abstract images using a variety of mediums including acrylic and oil paints, pastels, charcoal, inks, collage, and assemblage. My images explore the surrounding world and the juxtapositions of man and nature. Through my art, I attempt to examine the relationship that humanity has with the environments they live in. As an environmentalist, I have always wanted my work to convey a sense of environmental activism. Many of my images deal with environmental issues that are either overt or hidden. Past issues that have been explored in my work have included such topics as groundwater contamination, sea level rise and even litter polluting our most scenic and natural areas.
Ultimately, I want my work to engage people and encourage them to contemplate humanity’s environmental impact. “The world is changing, is it our fault, can we stop it, do we want to stop it, do we even have the choice?”
