WELCOME TO THE ANTHROPOCENE
As a visual artist and former wildlife veterinarian, my
artwork addresses the Anthropocene Epoch, the current
geological time period defined by humans causing vast and
unprecedented changes to the biosphere (climate change,
massive loss of natural habitat, and animal extinctions).
My previous career as serves as the primary inspiration for
my artwork. As a wildlife veterinarian in Africa, I was
actively and passionately involved in the conservation of
endangered species, including darting rhinos, moving lions,
and capturing rogue elephants. My artwork is a direct
response to those experiences and the influence of humans
on wild animals and the natural world.
