I am immensely inspired by the perfection and baffling complexities found in nature. Much of my work is driven by a desire to foster compassion and encourage examination of the way that we interact with and treat other life, particularly non-human animals.
Natural History will be exhibited at Artspace in Raleigh, North Carolina from April 3-May 23 2015.
