I work in print, paper, and book media to explore human's symbolic relationship to ecology and place. I favor animal symbolism and metaphor as a way to suggest a psychic and emotional disconnect between humans and their environments. This symbolism also relates the history of graphic works that satirize and critique contemporary issues. My recent work is a series of responses to the environmental impact of human industry especially with regards to energy extraction and climate change.
