I exaggerate and combine forms — distended tree limbs, distorted insects and birds, intestines, breasts, bellies, feet, genitals— in order to question the origin of every living thing and show the interconnected web and relationship between creatures we consider separate from ourselves.

My latest work challenges the destructive nature of human assumptions of superiority. It combines features from different life forms, to show inevitable links within earthly existence.
