"Most of my work leading up to this point has been animal and landscape inspired. I think of nature as the great unbiased space which I measure human endeavors against. When does the animal become human, when does instinct become reason, when does consciousness arise and what do we do when we become aware of it? From that perspective I think to myself, how can I reflect those ideas back to people in a meaningful way? How can these ideas be represented visually?"
