"By anthropomorphizing animals and placing them in vulnerable or human-like positions, I encourage a connection between viewers and subject. Through suspending the subject in moments of tension, I subtly push feelings of discomfort, apathy, aggression, or fear on the viewer. This encourages them to question the level of understanding possessed by animals and their potential role in society.
As our society progresses, so does our relationship with animals. Due to industrialization, our connections with other species have drastically diminished. My interest lies in the roles played by animals, which are often overlooked and mistreated. These works encourage a reconnection between people, animals, and foster a sense of social responsibility."
