Artist Biography
"I am in the mood to talk about current social issues. It is in the best interests of this country to be aware of reality and the positive and negative side effects of this industrialized nation. People and businesses are slowly coming around to a more ethical way of life, realizing that perhaps big companies may in fact be contributing to a lot of global problems. Awareness has to be elevated if we are to do the right thing and to continue to live harmoniously with the natural environment. The images in my collection are intentionally meant to be interpreted; they are ambiguous in nature, with purpose. The goal of my images is to challenge and ignite ideas that are pertinent in our society. It is my hope that the audience will view the ideas in a way to change his or her perception on the ethical and natural problems within each piece. They are meant to question the practices and happenings in a way that forces the viewer to change their introverted perception of what seems normal."
