Artist’s statement

My work addresses the destructive influence the human race is having on the environment we live in. While we celebrate advances and continuously strive to achieve greater developments, do we, as a race, take enough time to consider the sacrifices that are being made? This work questions what our values are. While newspapers and politicians may have us believe economic prosperity is a goal we should all strive for, I question this and consider the alternatives. Perhaps a change in goals is required as we start to lose more and more of what was once Planet Earth.
