My art gives voice to the wild animals whose world is being stolen by habitat destruction, over-consumption, and poaching. I’m interested in animal cognition and the fact that we humans generally (and incorrectly) believe that non-human animals are not intelligent. As I’ve learned more, the subject of animal intelligence has been showing up in my paintings. I hope that, as we unravel the mysteries of animals’ minds that more of us will exhibit empathy towards them.
