My work is a process, of working to harmonize the overabundance of consumerism as it connects to the natural environment. I collect and use found and recycled materials from my daily life - plastic bags, cardboard, and other packing materials that reflect the current state of consumerism in our society. I integrate these materials into my paintings, which portray abstract landscapes and natural forms. The paintings celebrate the beauty and awe of our planet's environments, while expressing the harsh truth of capitalism's affect on it. The work meditates on the current dangers and detriment of our consumeristic practices on nature, calling on themes of climate change and plastic pollution, while simultaneously celebrating the wonder of the natural world.
