"Animal symbolism, biology, mythology, and cosmology have always been intriguing to me. My
attraction to these topics have compelled me to find a way to create images that combine elements from these dissimilar fields to shape a universe that reflects my unique understanding of the interconnectivity of life.
My goal in creating my illustrations is that this symbolic representation allows the viewer to see these phenomena as a complete picture. A picture of an interacting universe filled to the brim with animals, plants, fungi, and insects. Using these organisms, I am going to make my own mythologies of nature and the Cosmos to better illustrate how humans attempt to understand the epic intricacies and mysteries of the Universe.
As time passes and new works are created, I am continuing to explore the exciting natural world around me. I am exploring my own creativity, evolving, and learning with each new piece in an attempt to bond with the world around me."
