Artist Statement
My work seeks to explore the possibility of change. A father of two my attention has been turned to the future of our planet and humanity. I hope that through awareness of our actions and understanding of the systems to which we contribute, change can be real. It is only by collective awareness and growth beyond our short term views that we can develop as a species. This is not possible alone, we must value each and every human experience as if it were our own. Let us face our past and embrace our collective future.
