Starting on the back of notebooks and even groceries in 2012, I have always been drawn to the texture of cardboard and its many possibilities (be resourceful).
Living and working in Denver, my real inspiration has continued to grow from compassionate wildlife conservation work by various organizations outside of the city. The importance of nonhuman animals is vastly greater than what societal conditioning has magnified through any consumptive or serving lens- Like ourselves, many species are recognized as sentient beings who share a capacity to live complex, meaningful lives. Ultimately, climate crisis and spillover demonstrate that we owe it to the animals, each other, and the earth, to examine our relationships with the natural world. It is with hope that my work will envoke curiosity in the lives of animals, as well as human-nature connectivity.
